EFA Peer Educators - Class of 2010

EFA Peer Educators - Class of 2010
MAROUA, CAMEROON -- Peer educators trained in an EFA International-sponsored program have educated more than 6,000 people in Cameroon’s Far North region about HIV transmission and prevention. The January-June training involved 14 HIV-positive youth in a course about the virus’s biology, as well as how to prevent, transmit and live positively with HIV. The program’s combination of education and follow-up evaluation empowered volunteers to speak openly about the virus in seven communities, in turn reducing stigma for themselves and HIV-positive persons in the future. With the support of generous donors, engaged volunteers and motivated participants, EFA International is continually able to implement trainings that empower HIV-positive youth. The generally marginalized population now has a chance to come together in solidarity and educate their communities, fighting the HIV and AIDS epidemics each day. (view small | med | large | orig)

Fadimatou, EFA-trained HIV Peer Educator
Hello, my name is Fadimatou. I have been a member of [EFA-sponsored support group] ABEPSA in Maroua for 3 years. For me, the most important aspect of the work of a Peer Educator is the role of counselor that we take on in the community. So many people look to us for guidance! As a Peer Educator, everyone in my community will be well informed about HIV and AIDS. (view small | med | large | orig)

Salihou, EFA-trained HIV Peer Educator
Hi, I’m Salihou. I am a member of ASSYSGOD. For me, a Peer Educator is, first, a member of an association who is trained in the fight against the pandemic of HIV and AIDS. Also, a Peer Educator is one who takes the information he receives and tours the community sharing the information. My greatest work is in encouraging the members of my community to go and get tested for HIV. I counsel them before and after their tests. If the test is positive, I also encourage them to join our association. I also do my best to help vulnerable children in my community. The training has helped me to render my association even stronger! We are even seeing fewer cases of illness within our association! (view small | med | large | orig)

Mairamou Hamandjoum, EFA-trained HIV Peer Educator
My name is Mairamou. I am the president of ASSYSGOD, the association in Godola. For me, it is my responsibilities as a Peer Educator to not only take part in the trainings but to faithfully work in my community in the domain of the fight against AIDS. I feel that I must inform my community about the modes of transmission of HIV, methods of prevention, the prevention of the transmission of HIV from a mother to her children and how HIV+ people can live positively. I hope that I can be a model for my community and for the members of my community. (view small | med | large | orig)
