WAAF (plus) works closely with Peer Educators as this enables us reach out not only to the hard to reach populations but also to enable the organization build up confidence within various target groups as they deal with their own peers. WAAF currently has over 150 Peer Educators spread across all its satellite offices.
These Peer Educators are people from the communities who have been trained to educate other members of their communities. They are able to get the WAAF (plus) message across to a wide network of people. Through refresher courses they are kept abreast with current information and are therefore able to communicate in a quality manner with their peers.
