About Website

Know Your Body is an online website funded by UNFPA and Right Here Right Now Nepal (RHRN), hosted by YUWA, that targets youth above 15 in Nepal to provide information regarding gender, sexuality and pleasure. We aim to create a sex positive, trauma informed digital space. Our website will be an informational hub that strives to create awareness regarding our bodies and encourage behavioral changes among our beneficiaries.

The Right Here Right Now partnership is created so that young people in all their diversity enjoy their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in gender-just societies. Young people are at the forefront of our partnership. We seek to unleash the power of youth, to increase public support for SRHR, to improve policies and laws, and to strengthen civil society. Lobbying and advocacy is our main strategy, supported by mutual capacity strengthening.

UNFPA is the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency. Our mission is to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled. We promote gender equality and empower women, girls and young people to take control of their bodies and their futures. We work with partners in more than 150 countries to provide access to a wide range of sexual and reproductive health services. Our goal is ending unmet need for family planning, preventable maternal death, and gender-based violence and harmful practices including child marriage and female genital mutilation by 2030.

Established in 2009, YUWA is a registered not-for-profit, purely youth-run and led organization working to promote youth participation through empowerment and advocacy. YUWA was born out of a group of committed youths, unofficially working in this sector since 2005. Since its formal establishment, YUWA has concentrated upon holistic youth issues and is especially working on three thematic issues: Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, Active Citizenship and Research Unit.
