SAGE Journals published an article by KHPT’s Adolescent Health team titled “Beyond ‘rescue’ or ‘responsibilisation’ within girls’ empowerment programmes: Notes on recovering agency from the Global South” in Childhood, an international peer-reviewed journal. The article is based on analysis from the Sphoorthi programme implemented in North Karnataka; it argues that agency is a relational quality embedded within social relationships and presents the ethical need and possibilities for going beyond frameworks that individualise empowerment. The article, authored by Dr Maithreyi Ravikumar, Dr Ashwini Pujar, Dr Satyanarayana Ramanaik, and Mr Mohan H L, can be accessed here.
