Youth become protagonists of their own lives

By Anna Schwaller | Project Assistant

Peer educators as role models for their peers
Peer educators as role models for their peers

IBC wants to empower youth to become protagonists of their own life and to provide them the necessary skills to face the everyday challenges of their lives. The youth are encouraged to contribute actively to more peaceful, just and inclusive societies, as many personal stories confirm. 

Gisèle Kibongui, life skills facilitator in Congo, states: “It is a real pleasure to see how young people engage in the project and understand the relevance of the issues. Life Skills help them to cope with peer pressure and keep themselves safe from the drugs and alcohol that destroy many lives.”

Part of the life skills education is also the training of peer educators who serve as potential role models for their peers. The peer educators become ambassadors of the project and are able to accompany their peers within organized “life skills clubs” who are linked to the participant schools of the project, or to neighbourhood committees or churches. These life skill clubs are “training” space where the youth can practice their life skills, debate, prepare theatres, songs, dances, do sport activities and live in a healthy and positive environment. It keeps the children and youth off the streets and away from alcohol and other drugs after the school.  

The project in its essence wants to build a new generation of youth who have not only healthy lifestyles without alcohol and other drug consumption, but also a life free from violence, a life dedicated to the achievement of gender equality and contributing to a more peaceful, just and inclusive society!

Thank you for supporting this project over and over again! We are grateful for everything you give.
