Aims & objectives

Our main aim is to develop the capacity of peer education platforms and NGOs for reducing gender-based discrimination. To achieve this we have developed a modern peer education programme by exchanging, adapting and creating non-­formal methods and tools which can be used in youth work.

For achieving this, during the project, we have:

Developed a non-formal training kit for tackling gender based discrimination, that can be used both in rural and urban areas. The t-kit addresses topics like: acknowledging the ways in which traditions and stereotypes influence the attitudes of men and women, encouraging critical thinking on the topic, combating the negative prejudice, encouraging positive social action. Also, it will include specialised sections on developing facilitation skills for organising peer education workshops.
Created a network of 22 “Peer Practitioners” in the field of promoting gender equality (trainers that are able to facilitate workshops tackling gender based discrimination in youth environment)
Tested the methods of the T-Kit across communities in Central Asia, East and West Europe, in a minimum of 10 peer trainings, both in urban and rural areas.
Created a network of 10 “Senior Trainers”, (trainers that will later be able to train other peer educators to facilitate workshops tackling gender based discrimination in youth environment)
Developed a framework for quality-assurance in peer education adapted to the needs of this type of work, to support the assessment of peer education programs with respect to quality
