One week in the Summer School in Kovachevci has passed!
On the 7th day, the young participants had to conduct sessions on their own. This was their first time to work as peer educators for most of them. They had to put all the knowledge learned from the training into practice. All trainees got a feedback from the trainers about their sessions.

Furthermore, the theater group presented their short-plays related to youth problems as interpretations of familiar fairy tales. The music group made an amazing performance with songs which brought tears to everyone’s eyes. An Eco-showroom, with models dressed in a fascinating way with used materials was presented.

Representative of “The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria” and the chair person of the “Prevention and Control of HIV/AIDS” programme attended the whole day.
The aim was to assimilate their knowledge and to become more confident in their work as Peer Educators.

The event will only be reflected by the Y-PEER Bulgaria website. The national television “BTV” made reportage and broadcasted it in the newscast.

Videos and interviews from the training were made which were related to ”Youth in action.”  The following day will be also related to the topic. After the training a short movie will be presented.
