Riziki’s Story | The Power Of Peer Education
March 2023

We’re proud to announce that Riziki will be receiving our Youth of The Month Award for her incredible work in peer education.

Riziki is a beneficiary of The Nasio Trust and now works with us in the community to educate young people on sexual reproductive health and HIV prevention.

Our peer education programme (supported by the incredible Egmont Trust) is having a huge impact on young people in Western Kenya.

Since 2018:

  • we have trained 366 peer educators
  • who have in turn reached nearly 10,000 young people in the Mumias area.
  • As a direct result of this activity we have seen a 35% increase in local young people accessing sexual reproductive health care and HIV services.
  • Perhaps even more impressive, there has been a 66% reduction in girls dropping out of school due to pregnancy.

Riziki has led the charge on this. Her fearless attitude and confidence amongst her peers is inspiring to everyone that sees it. She is a shining example of a change-maker in her community and a role model to other girls.

Find out more about Riziki and the power of peer education in this great video.
