By building on previous research and collective qualitative insights, PPRC has produced “Peer Education 101: For Us, by Us,” a digital open-access peer educator training module aimed at promoting the practice of Peer Education models in SRHR and CSE programs in Bangladesh. This module will serve as a key tool in promoting the practice of peer education in Bangladesh, strengthening emerging youth-led initiatives, and creating scope for more effective rights-based SRHR education delivery.

Kotha and PPRC jointly hosted a launching event on March 11th, 2021, titled ‘Peer Education 101: For Us by Us | Strengthening the CSE Ecosystem’. The launching event was designed as a dialogue on Peer Education and CSE in Bangladesh. They were joined by over 50 participants, including relevant stakeholders ranging from youth organizations, students from schools in our network, NGOs and INGOs working in SRHR in Bangladesh, including Share-net Bangladesh, as well as three high-level policymakers. Below is a video of the event:
