Peer Educators

Our peer educators are the cornerstone of the organizations since they are the ones who keep the finger on the pulse. They have the complete trust of the community and everyday they make their daily round visiting people, listening to their problems, guiding them in the right direction (HIV checkup point, hospital, police related issues …), connecting them to our centre by informing the community about our activities, workshops and events, and spreading a positive vibe with their caring presence. The peer educators are the vital link between all Aatmvishwas’ initiatives and the community. They decide which activities are needed based on their own ideas and what lives in the community. Subsequently, they also make sure people attend the programs. The peer educators are responsible for increased numbers of sex workers coming for testing and checkups by 40 percent.
