So, what is the Peer Education Programme?
The Peer Education Programme is an incentive which seeks to see a generation of young African leaders confront the root issues of HIV and risk behavior as well as imparting vision and purpose to current and future generations. The Peer education programme works in four schools to support education in difficult circumstances and to provide a skills training and mentoring programme for these young adults to become influential community leaders, youth work practitioners and experts in peer education practice.
8 Facilitators work with 224 Peer Educators within a school year. The Educators in turn reach out to over 5000 children with the messages of the programme through their day to day, peer-to-peer relationships.
