Importance of a Girl Peer Educator

Name : Gowri Age : 16

Qualification : +2

Village : Karadipakkam, Tamil Nadu

When she attended the community training on HIV/AIDS, sex and sexuality, we found her to be a very bright student. So, we selected her as a Peer Educator. Our choice proved to be good. For, she learned eagerly many things during the programme and took part in all the activities.

She is now very interested in helping many adolescent girls to over come many of their issues around growing up. She identifies young girls and teaches them about avoiding pre marital sex, the need to be clean during the periods and clears them of all myths and misconceptions.

Many girls profited from her activities and they mentioned the same to their parents. She is now very much respected in the village and any parent finding their girl in some kind of melancholy or problem they send the girl to Gowri. She is a gem among our peer educators.
