The SPOT Community Project is a movement in Malaysia, created for girls by girls, focusing on providing Comprehensive Sexuality Education. The SPOT programmes encourage young women to develop a positive attitude towards sexual and reproductive health. They also aim to develop skills to further their personal and social development.
SPOT is a Soroptimist International Club of Petaling Jaya (SIPJ) project. It is designed to help contribute to international conventions, by helping to provide education as a human right, advancing equality and advancing the status of women.
