Abstract

This project’s aimed at strengthening peer educators competencies in educating youths on HIV prevention and behaviour change through training. Community assessments identified HIV prevention among youths as the major pressing need that had to be addressed and MYE as the local NGO to host the project to address the need. Training package for peer educators was developed and peer educators were trained on HIV prevention and condom use, BCC and communication skills. Following the training, peer educators were also monitored, supportively supervised and mentored with the aim of improving their performance to effectively deliver correct information to youths. Project’s valuation was also conducted to measure project impact to the targeted beneficiaries. The project sustainability was ensured throughout the community need assessment, project implementation, monitoring and evaluation. LGA and community members were fully involved in identifying the most pressing community needs through interviews and meetings. MYE management were also fully involved in assessing peer educators and youths’ capacity on HIV and AIDS, designing of project, development of training package and relevant project’s tools. MYE management was also involved in monitoring, SSM visits and evaluation of the project.
