The Teen Peer Education Project has provided weekly health education sessions on reducing the risk of acquiring STDs, HIV, HPV to more than one thousand Malian teenagers, including out-of-school girls, since 2012.

The Teen Peer Education Program actively recruits the next generation of Malians, 14 to 18-year-old adolescents and young adults, in an engaging, co-ed, teen health education program that aims to address health issues faced by youth in Mali.

Rokia is part of a team at the Hope Center Clinic who are working with young women to maintain school enrollment, increase literacy rates, provide reproductive health education including teen pregnancy prevention, and expand their access to health care. In 2018, with your support, we were able to engage 1,469 youth participants in weekly health education sessions on STDs, HIV, HPV and reproductive health.
