About Peer To Peer

Our Background

Peer To Peer Uganda (PEERU) is a registered organization that was founded by a group of young people who volunteered their time to work towards social transformation through reaching out to fellow young people in rural communities of Uganda.

Since 2013, PEERU has demonstrated that young people are significant actors in development and can drive positive change at local, community, national and international levels in the areas of Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights, HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention and through strategic partnerships and Harm reduction developing age appropriate awareness campaigns and interventions.

About us

Our programs as an organization are based on a holistic bottom up model, focusing on individual leadership change amongst young people as well as systematic change in policy and practice towards a more supportive environment for youth led development. PEERU provides, equips and inspires young people (12–30) years in Uganda with high quality, high impact and gender-sensitive sexual and reproductive health and rights information through capacity building, specialized service referral, issue-specific advocacy, strategic partnerships and life skills through rights based programming. Our programs target Adolescents and young people in Uganda between ages of 12 -30 years (12-24, 25-30) both in school and out of school in Peri-urban and rural communities.
