Our Mission

Breaking
Taboos 

We tackle tabooed issues, mainly in the field of sexuality, by developing playful programs for young people in order to foster their mental, social and physical health.

Are they ready to make their own decisions?

Does he know about safe sex?

One will be a mother soon

Do his friends know that he is gay?

Sexuality is still one of the biggest global taboos due to its conflict potential and cultural restrictions.

Consequences for young people

SHAME

Taboos lead to shame and personal and social insecurity

CONFUSION

The lack of knowledge leads to irritation and risky behaviour

SILENCE

Not being allowed to speak leads to stigma and prejudice

 

How can we change these numbers?
