  • Organisation

    Disability Repro-Light is an organisation that focuses on enabling a firm ground on sexual and reproductive health and rights to adolescents, youth and women with disabilities.

    People with disabilities have the same sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs as other members of the population. However, they often face barriers in accessing both information and services related to SRH. This barrier leaves them vulnerable to gender-based violence, unintended pregnancies, sexual violence and sexually transmitted disease.

    Its goal is to enhance a platform which promotes adolescents; youths and women with disabilities can be equipped and enjoy their sexual and reproductive rights.

    To sustain an effective, responsive and well-managed ground to end reproductive health and education bias, sexual and physical violence experienced by adolescents, youths and women with disabilities through empowering their sexual and reproductive rights.

    • Project

      The REPRO-HERI project is improving sexual and reproductive health status and creating a ground to advocate for such issues while involving young people with disabilities in Tanzania. The acronym HERI is short for Health Equality and Rights Initiative. This project uses an edutainment approach for young people with disabilities as they are grouped in clubs (HERI-clubs) to manage the increased demand for sexual and reproductive health and rights information and freedom of speech to them and later generate an impact of transformative sexual and reproductive health and rights education for young persons with disabilities in primary schools, secondary schools and universities.

      The edutainment approach involves creative and refreshing means to learn SRHR such as SRHR related games and Repro-HERI puzzles, drama and poem singing. HERI discussion talks are used to facilitate dialogues in formulated Campus HERI Clubs as a safe learning space for adolescent and youth students with disabilities.

      Furthermore, the project is enabling an environment for sexual and reproductive health and rights for people with disabilities. This is done by training  gatekeepers on sexual and reproductive health. These are community gatekeepers; religious, clan and local government leaders, parents or guardians of people with disabilities and special education teachers who receive sexual and reproductive health and rights training and manual leaflets. The training mainly focuses on the rights of adolescents, youth women and girls with disabilities towards SRH services regardless of social and cultural barriers and creating a conducive environment.
