Interactive theater and comics promote equality between girls and boys.

Why we care: Teenagers often lack information, but also self-confidence, when it comes to the developing healthy and equal relationships.

How we’re solving this: By establishing an interactive dialogue with teens to help them grow up in gender equality.

We’re creating an interactive theatre piece specifically designed for 12-15 year olds called “Girls and boys: between us”. In addition, we’re contributing to an innovative comic series “For you Sandra,” directed by one of the most famous comic creators in Europe, Derib, and distribute over 1,000 copies.

The 5 pilot productions of the play will take place at schools in the following French provinces: Essonne, Nord, Calvados, Paris, and hauts de Seine. The comic, including the new educational packet, will be distributed all over France through the 30 offices of Mouvement du Nid.

We’re addressing key challenges faced by teens when it comes to developing healthy friendships and relationships, such as a lack of information, fear of being judged, and peer pressure.

Each year, Mouvement du Nid reaches more than 15,000 girls and boys. This new theatre piece and comic series will be at the center of our reach-out. We’ve developed strong partnerships with schools across France, and 40 of our well-trained volunteers will carry out these workshops.

With your support, we’ll foster young girls and boys to become actors of change, respect, and equality in their schools, families, and communities. Help us give teens and the professionals working with them the interactive tools to develop equal and healthy relationships.
