The OUT Peer Education Programme was initiated in January 2010 and is still going strong. The aim of the programme is to offer peer education to MSM (and in a broader sense, LGBT clients) in the greater Tshwane (Pretoria) region. Peer Educators are trained and mentored by OUT. For the past years, OUT has learned about the challenges in developing, implementing and the management
of this intervention, which forms an important part of providing minimum services to sexual minorities and or key populations.
These include working with DOH as the funder, developing training materials, sourcing, selecting and
training appropriate Peer Educators, reaching targets, mentoring, coaching and management of Peer Educators, Monitoring and Evaluation and report writing.
