Today I began a training for 15 new Peer Educators within our HIV and AIDS education and awareness programme. And already, I note the difference this process has made in the very way I approach the training, the language I am using, and more importantly - how I view and interact with the potential PEs.
It occurred to me....that this is an excellent way of spreading the SALT message: Lets teach our YOUTH. Who better to make this investment in? We have seen and acknowledged what a challenge it is to change the adults - who are set in their ways....consider the Youth; who are such an integral part of our today...and certainly our leaders of tomorrow.
YOUTH are the Agents of Change!
