As stated in the case study, “This intervention focuses on building the capacity, knowledge and self-efficacy of young people who sell sex.


This approach invests in people, who in turn share information to their friends, peers, family members and children." The case study outlines a number of challenges faced by the peer educators and nurse counsellors.

This includes group dynamics in which some groups did not bond and in other cases group members did not always respect their peer educator.

Money that can help our women and children is wasted and no one is held accountable.

For the poor child I saw on your footage there is “market” across Atlantic.

Group members also sometimes requested additional refreshments (beyond the coffee and bread already provided) to come to sessions.

In addition, the priorities of young people who sell sex are often not SRHR-related, but rather the need to provide housing, food, and clothing for themselves and their families, plus the need to attend school or start a business.

However, existing programmes are taking place on a small scale and often in larger towns.

They need to be nationally scaled up." This 12-page case study discusses the experience of a peer education project in Ethiopia, which trained young people who sell sex to reach out to their peers and lead sexual and reproductive health and rights sessions, supported by trained nurses and a referral system for services.

Dear GMT of BBC, I watched this morning(EST) GMT with George Alagiah and today’s guest from Save Children alleged that Ethiopian young girls do not now what sex is. Sex has been with humanity since Adam and Eve(Lucy). When you bring opposite sexes together the attraction is natural. The issue we have in Ethiopia is partly cultural and mainly poverty.
