Rutgers celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017. This marks, of course, a special milestone for our organisation and the world of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights. Our work is carried out in the Netherlands and in countries where we can make a difference. Rutgers’ work is part of the ‘Dutch identity’ which firmly commits to enabling people make their own choices in relation to sexuality and reproductive health.
Young people are naturally curious about sex and sexuality. Rutgers asserts the right of young people to receive adequate education to make well-informed choices in relationships and their sexual lives. Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) means providing information and guidance about the physical and emotional aspects of growing up and starting relationships.
We are eager to ensure that everyone in the world has the opportunity to live a happy and healthy life. Unfortunately, this is not something that can be taken for granted. In this overview 2016 we tell about our drive and passion. About Rutgers’ DNA, the milestones we have reached and the challenges that lie ahead in the future. I wish you pleasure in reading and viewing this review!
’Girls are not only brides or commodities, they are also human beings. We need to end child marriage’; Minister for information Mr. Inu from Bangladesh succesfully launched our four year programme 'Hello, I Am' on Thursday July 27th.
A baseline survey done in six upazilas before launching the programme found that nearly 80% of girls in the project areas are married during their adolescent period. Through creating a supportive social environment challenging the socio-cultural norms that endorse child marriages, 'Hello, I Am' works toward ending child marriage in Bangladesh.
