This video shows how SAPDA, Engagemedia's Linking and Learning partner, strives to empower youth with disability by focusing on rights-based movements for women and children. This video is an output from a media workshop in 2017.
This is a participatory output from the media workshop arranged by SAPDA in 2017 that began with mapping topics within the issue of sexuality and reproductive health rights.
The term "Sex before marriage" in the video is an attempt to highlight stigma towards children born out of extra-marital sex. Students and youth in general, including young people with disabilities, are subjected to such notion which in many aspects oversimplify the understanding of sexual and reproductive rights.

Dalam video ini, partisipan lokakarya media yang diselenggarakan SAPDA mengekspresikan pandangan mereka tentang topik-topik dalam isu Hak Seksual dan Kesehatan Reproduksi untuk anak muda, khususnya anak muda dengan disabilitas. Video ini dibuat secara partisipatoris, yakni dengan melibatkan partisipan workshop dalam perumusan gagasan hingga teknis pembuatan video.
Istilah "seks di luar nikah" yang muncul dalam video adalah upaya untuk menunjukkan masih kuatnya stigma terhadap anak yang lahir di luar institusi pernikahan, terutama di kalangan pelajar atau kaum muda pada umumnya, tak terkecuali kaum muda dengan disabilitas.
