As a peer educator, the organization has helped me in improving my self-esteem. Now I can interact and socialize with my peers within and outside my community..
With my time here, I have been able to improve my self-esteem, and also improve in my capacity building and I can serve as a role model to the community and I have pass round to my peer educators as an outreach coordinator and I wish to say thanks to IMH.
Mind was a challenge, during the time the House of Assembly pass the bill, my peer educators find it difficult to do their work because of fear of arrest but I as their outreach coordinator and a leader was willing to teach them ways to carry out their work in reaching out not only to their old clients but to new ones.
