Youth Peer Education

Mutomo Youth Peer Educators

Who are they?
The members are young people who have just finished second level education and who apply to work as volunteers in our Youth Peer Educator Group at the Hospital. Their mission is to equip youth with life skills and living values to enable them to make good choices in their lives. The group was set up in 2004 with funding from the Irish Government through the Sisters of Mercy. It has been a very active, effective and popular group since its inception. Peer Education is the strategy used to reach the target group – youth in and out of school. They work in schools clubs and in Churches. The group is inter-denominational. Members stay with the group on average 18 months to 2 years.

Potential volunteers apply when they complete their Form IV. Their applications are supported by their respective chief and their local priest/pastor. They are interviewed and they undergo a written test on their knowledge of basic facts about health and HIV.  They must be fluent in English and Kiswahili. Training is provided at local level to start with, and then they are sent to be trained as facilitators (TOF) by Education for Life (Kenya). They are supervised in their work in the schools until they are declared competent and accurate in answering questions posed by the students. They provide programs in behavior change process (BCP) in secondary schools and church groups and behavior formation (BFP) in primary schools for 8- 13 year olds).
