Project Growing Up operates globally with local volunteers.

In most development countries Project Growing Up topics are undervalued. Parents are unable to focus on these issues because they are simply too busy trying to provide their family with food or a roof over their heads. 

Then of course there're some taboo topics as well. Sexuality, menstruation, contraception, self-image and early pregnancy are some of these unspoken topics. 

We find our project locations by contacting small NGO’s who operate with local volunteers. Most of the projects are at schools, orphanages or local organisations for youth.

The projects are customized to the local values, traditions and believes and in consultation with the organisation where the project will be held. That way we create a safe and identifiable learning environment for the students.
