Uganda Red Cross Society (URCS)

Building on the youth component of the previous UNFPA country program, which established two youth corners, Red Cross Uganda and Pathfinder signed an MOU to establish two additional youth corners in Katakwi and Oyam districts. The project's objective was to support Pathfinder's efforts to build the capacity of a team of peer educators to respond to adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health issues through improved referral networks to the youth corners, provision of information to their peers, and documentation of peer-to-peer activities.

In the last quarter of the project, peer educator cascade trainings were conducted in the four communities served by the youth corners. The goals of the trainings were to increase the knowledge base of the youth and build their skills to train fellow youth in a cascade mode and to handle RH issues affecting youth.
