What we do!
As a youth led and serving organization, PEERU puts out its priority on reaching out to the youth mainly in inadequately served communities and rural setting with our programming putting more of our emphasis on knowledge acquisition, community sensitization and awareness creation around areas of sexual and reproductive health in a bid to spread the message to our fellow young people in Uganda.
We seek to extend this knowledge to various communities in Uganda by carrying out age appropriate and issue specific interventions through implementing age appropriate sensitization campaigns and programs, peer led activities and training programs as avenues to address challenges that the youth face. Through implementation of youth led strategic and behavioral change communication interventions, we are making bold steps and progress in the dissemination of SRHR and HIV/AID’s interventions to the youth by communicating issues concerning youth sexuality and well-being.
With a strong volunteer base, we are working with peer educators through implementing mentorship programs with the in school and out of school youth. PEERU is embracing the use of technological advancements; use of mass communication, online media (social media platforms) and establish strategic partnerships with other major players working in/around the field of SRHR and HIV/AIDs as we communicate issues concerning youth sexuality, sexual health and well-being.
