Youth for protection against COVID-19


In the Republic of Congo, where we run our Life Skills programme, a peer-to-peer prevention programme has proven successful in sensitizing youth for appropriate behaviour to limit the spread of the virus. Youth participants of the “Generation 5S” (5S: sans drogue, sans alcohol, sans violence, sans VIH/SIDA, sans discrimination) use leaflets to sensitize their peers for correct behaviour. In a second step they encourage them to pass on the information to others, distributing leaflets to them and triggering a snowball-system.
