Activities

These activities are designed for groups and they can be conducted in multi-faith settings. They cover controversial topics through group discussion and organised debate and give participants a chance to understand multiple sides of critical SRHR debates, including access to contraception and abortion. 

Activity 1: The role of religious leaders in promoting SRHR (90 minutes)

This activity allows participants to explore the role of religious leaders in promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). Working in groups they will focus on the role of religious leaders in promoting SRHR and consider how they can engage their communities around issues of choice, equality.

Activity 2: Debating SRHR (60 minutes)

This activity introduces two ‘hot topics’: the promotion of contraceptives access in schools and the right for women to access abortion without consent. The aim is twofold: first, to encourage introspection and second, to provide an opportunity to consider ‘the other side’. The participants will work in for groups. Two will take one topic and two the other. Each group will take a different side of the argument and prepare for the debate at the end.
