Peer Education Training Held on 08th/Oct/2013 at King Of Kings College at 4pm
I am glad to report to you about peer education training that was held at King of Kings College on the date mentioned above at 4pm.
Like we have always done in other schools and King of Kings being one of our member schools on the date mentioned above we held a peer education training in their school main hall and all students (about 200) were present and their deputy head teacher was the chief mobiliser for this activity.
On this day a number of topics were presented on various reproductive health issues such as cervical cancer, STIs, HIV/AIDS, condom use (both male and female condoms).
Most interesting, present with us was a youth who works with Kabarole Hospital who has been a victim of HIV/AIDS since childhood and has lived for over twenty (20) years with the virus. He encouraged the youth to be free and test for this virus and be careful with life. In his last words he told the peers that he was born with the virus, and mother-to-child transmission could have led to his infection.
We also had two peer educators from Mpanga secondary school who demonstrated the use of both male and female condoms.
A presentation on cervical cancer was done by a counselor from one of our partners, Reproductive Health Uganda(RHU). We are grateful to RHU for their continuous support towards peer education activities, they provided us with both female and male condoms
Dr Arif was also present and in his address to the students he encouraged them to have principles guiding their lives and daily decisions. The program manager was also present and thanked all students for turning up and promised to work hand in hand with the peer education club at King of Kings College to raise the standards of peer education activities in that school.
After the training, 44 (forty four) peer educators stayed behind for a brief meeting with us and we agreed that we would visit them again on 17th /oct/2013 at 4pm to discuss more about the club activities.

Peer Education Training – August 2013
On August 18, 2013, an outreach training of Peer Educators took place at the Kyebambe Girls Secondary School in Fort Portal. This school has a total student population of approximately 1,000 of which 80 students have been selected as Peer Educators.
At this training session, 36 students were trained in peer leadership as well as reproductive health topics. The facilitators mainly concentrated on qualities, roles, activities of a peer education club as well as general qualities of a leader. Training in reproductive health topics mainly centered on HIV/AIDS, life skills and contraception. This training was conducted by the Denis, thePEK Coordinator, and Daphine, a senior and pioneer Peer Educator.
The session was very interactive whereby Peer Educator were involved in role plays such as the 3 – model approach of decision making role play in which Peer Educator explored the necessary steps involved in making a wise decision when faced with a situational paradox in matters regarding decisions about sex. In this role play Peer Educators are required to make three decisions, write three consequences, both negative and positive and then weigh the consequences before making a final decision.
