Adolescent Reproductive Sexual Health Program (ARSH)

Adolescence is a crucial Phase in the life of women. At this stage, she stands at the threshold of adulthood. The Stage is intermediary between childhood and womanhood and is the most eventful for mental, emotional, and psychological as well as psychological well being. This is also the period of psychological transition from a child who lives in the protective shelter of the family to an adolescent who is coming to grip with the realities of society. The adolescence is especially vulnerable, being often deprived of both adequate care and learning opportunities and being more vulnerable to nutritional deficiencies, during this period. They have limited life option and are caught up in a cycle of early marriage, pregnancy and childbearing with little control over their lives.
