Y- PEER PETRI Morocco
The Y-PEER (Youth Peer Education Network) is an organization working in the field of sexual and reproductive health in 52 countries throughout the world. Y-PEER PETRI Morocco is a youth-to-youth initiative pioneered by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and was founded in Morocco in 2006. It is a network of more than 10 organizations and gathers more than 300 volunteers around the kingdom. In Morocco, Y-PEER PETRI Morocco works on promoting civic engagement, youth participation and raising awareness about sexual and reproductive health issues, by building youth capacities. The organization uses alternative methods of education (such as theatre-based techniques, role games, simulations, etc.) to engage peers.
Y-PEER PETRI Morocco’s vision is to strengthen youth, in terms of exposing their individual characteristics, being regarded as subjects in all areas particularly in the eyes of the decision makers, and fulfilling participation-oriented social utility through creating spaces based on their subjectivities. Their mission is to strengthen and spread high quality peer-to-peer education in the fields of adolescent sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and HIV prevention worldwide, Gender-Based violence, SDGs and human rights.
There are 3 Y-PEER Centers in each region. Peer Education Training and International Institute (PETRI) are located in Sofia, Bulgaria, in Y-PEER International Center for Youth and Culture (NCCA) in Jordan Amman and Y-PEER Asia Pacific Center in Bangkok, Thailand. The centers support the work of Y-PEER both in international and in countries and support the strengthening of country networks with capacity building trainings.
