Marinella Matejcic received a $5,000 seed grant to implement a comprehensive sexuality education research project

share

Marinella Matejcic, a Women Deliver Young Leader from Croatia, was awarded a $5,000 Women Deliver seed grant, made possible by Johnson & Johnson, to implement her project entitled “CSE in Practice.” Croatia is lacking meaningful comprehensive sexuality education (CSE), and this project seeks to change that through research and advocacy efforts. After Marinella conducts research on the topic of youth sexuality, she wil use that research as the basis of advocacy efforts with both the public and the government to implement meaningful CSE in Croatian schools, including six workshops to be held in dormitories in the community. Ultimately, the project will produce a youth advocacy toolkit on CSE that can serve as a foundation for others to push for meaningful CSE moving forward.
