Peer-educators

Peer education is the process when well-trained and motivated people conduct informal educational activities with their peers. These activities are aimed at developing their knowledge, attitudes and skills via their peers since there is trust between them, they have common interests, they speak common language and they have common social demands.

By applying “peer to peer” methodology Association HERA XXI has trained 463 young persons and held 5205 informational and educational meetings with the youth in Tbilisi and the towns and villages of Imereti, Kakheti, Samegrelo, Samtskhe-Javakheti and Kvemo Kartli.
