About TICAH

TICAH is a feminist organization that works to promote health, equitable relationships, and community action. It seeks to enhance the positive links between health and cultural knowledge, practices, beliefs and artistic expression. We believe that culture shapes health, that beauty is powerful, that expression is activism and that stories have something to teach.
Our work includes training and research in people’s rights to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health, publication and documentation to stimulate attention to grassroots solutions, advocacy on sexual and reproductive health and creative projects to raise our communal voices to affect national policy and programs. With a team of 17, TICAH’s work has impacted over 120,000 people and with our MAMA Network program we have collaborated with ten grassroots organizations across seven African countries and are looking to expand to five more in the next two years.

TICAH’s sexuality program “Our Bodies, Our Choices” has produced informative and provocative sexuality curriculums and facilitation guides for all ages. We facilitate peer discussions reaching communities that include in-school and out-of-school girls and boys, people living with HIV, sex workers and women with disabilities.
