2. Human Centered Design Thinking
Human-centered design is a creative approach to problem solving. It starts with assessing need of
the people for which the product or campaign is being designed and ends with developing a solution
product or campaign that can be said as tailor made for the target audience. The fundamental idea
is to build a deep empathy with the target populations; generating exhaustive list of possible
solution; developing an optimum number of prototypes; consultation with target population on the
viability and relevancy of the prototypes; choosing the best prototype and developing it into a
solution product for consumption or utility of the community/society/world in large.

Human-centered can be divided into three phases:

1. Inspiration – immersing self in the lives of the target audience in order to comprehensively
understand their needs.
2. Ideation – the process of translating your understanding from inspiration phase to ideas,
designs and prototypes of possible solutions.
3. Implementation – the process of creating a real model. This also might include
dissemination of the product or marketing.

This group of young people will become instrumental in the collective effort of

possible deterrent to existing forms of sexual harassment and encourage people to
take up alternative ways of thinking, seeing and behaving in order to create

discussion on issues of sexual harassment and ways to eliminate violence against
women and girls from the society. As such, they will serve as peer icon for their own
peers and inspire other youth to access and utilize the resources available to them
into creating products and tools that will aid and contribute to the collective struggle
to end violence against women and girls.
