Peer to Peer Counselling

The Impact Through Peers Project with continued support from Rose Charities Hillman Medical Education Fund trains Peer Group Educators(PGEs) in Sexually Transmitted Infection prevention, ways of avoiding unintended pregnancies, gender and sexuality, cervical cancer prevention, leadership skills, hygiene and sanitation, environmental protection and facilitation skills. These PGE’s are senior students from 6 Secondary Schools in Mbarara, Uganda and they are empowered with knowledge and skills which they will pass on to their peers in their respective schools; a process that is monitored by Peer Group Trainers who will give continuous education and support.
