Maidan Summit 2011 - Kalyani Subramanyam, Naz Foundation


Published on

In her presentation at Maidan Summit 2011, Ms Kalyani Subramanyam advocated the use of sport in breaking barriers when it comes to community health. Giving examples from the Naz Foundation, she explained how sport makes it easy to deliver programmes and messages around HIV-AIDS, sexual health and well-being. Through her presentation, she briefly explained the four pillars on which the Goal curriculum is based – be yourself, be healthy, be empowered and be money-savvy – and emphasised that health is among the most important of these.

She highlighted engagement through sport leading to creation of a confident comfort-zone for girls and women to come out and talk about their problems, as one of the major advantages sport offers.
