NaariSamatā work on issues related to gender, caste and sexuality by teaching youth about equality and respect, and by working on the general empowerment of women and girls.
As most sexual abuse begins well before puberty, The Stanley Group Foundation and NaariSamatā believe preventative education, if it is to have any effect at all, must begin early in middle school.Universal primary education is one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for the year 2030, and initiative The Stanley Group Foundation and NaariSamatā together are proud to support.
Many of the poorest countries in the world are also those that have the poorest education rates. This, we believe, leads to gender and economic disparity, which when compounded by 'blind-eye political policy' and lack of awareness of the countries' diaspora, results in indescribable poverty, sexual violence, and the promulgation of caste systems within the local society.
According to UNESCO, if all students in low-income countries just had basic reading skills (nothing else), an estimated 171 million people could escape extreme poverty and the sociosexual violence it accompanies.
