Peer Educators

Johnson & Johnson, in partnership with UNFPA and the relevant provincial and district partners will establish under the leadership of the YLT, a team consisting of eighty-three Peer Educators to conduct face-to-face peer education to AGYW willing to participate in the DREAMS Amplification Program that will be deployed within the three KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) DREAMS districts; eThekwini, uMkhanyakude and uMgungundlovu.

The Peer Educators demonstrate a shift away from working for young people, to empowering young people to ensure youth-friendly approaches and action.
