Integrating Model Gardening Within the Peer Education Program in Youth-Friendly Service Facilities
Reproductive health choices have far-reaching effects on the lives of young people. During these critical years,
a course is often determined for their future health, productivity, and relationships. An investment in the Adolescent and Youth Health and Development (AYHD) of adolescents and young people is an investment in the future of the country they will build tomorrow. Peer education is a key element of Pathfinder International Ethiopia’s AYHD programming.
Peer educators are volunteers who work directly with their peers to improve their knowledge and health-seeking behavior, including prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Peer-education programs support young people in developing positive group norms and making healthy decisions about their reproductive health and other developmental issues.
