Vikalpdesign conducts trainings and workshops in the areas of Reproductive Health, Communication and Life Skills. Some examples are mentioned here.
Under the "Fund for Leadership Development" of the MacArthur Foundation, year 2000-2003, Vikalpdesign was able to make significant contributions in the field of reproductive health communication. Effective training programmes and media material on sexuality were designed to address young rural people.
The fellowship project collaborated with 8 NGOs in Southern Rajasthan and worked with 600 adolescents. Through illustration workshops and training programmes we understood perceptions of young people and addressed sexuality issues in creative ways.
