Human Sexuality Training: Comfort, Attitude and Values Evaluation (CAVE) 
CAVE is a human sexuality training program for students, professionals in health care, counselling, education, and social services fields, parents, and other individuals seeking enhanced personal relationships. The goal is to provide individuals and professionals with an opportunity to build awareness, comfort, confidence, and competence by exploring their values and gaining the knowledge required to talk about sexuality in an unbiased, non-judgmental, knowledgeable, and inclusive manner. 

Nirantar offers gender  trainings as well as sexuality  trainings to NGOs, educational institutions, community-level organisations, LGBT groups, governmental programmes, etc. The trainings seek to link concepts related to gender and sexuality with the personal experiences of the participants as well as the work that the organizations are engaged with. In addition to trainings, Nirantar also conducts workshops and as well as courses on issues of gender as well as on sexuality. While Nirantar sees issues of gender and sexuality as being interlinked, we also believe that they also have their own specificity that needs to be engaged with. Hence there are separate trainings on gender and separate trainings on sexuality that are offered.
