UNFPA trains young people to become peer educators, leaders who can help other young people with information, advice and if necessary, referrals to medical or psychological professionals.
Evra would like to be a veterinarian one day, however she has also shown an interest in performing and making movies. During our visit she took the camera and decided to interview her best friend, Deva. "Tell a story about the earthquake," she said.
Vivien and the other youth workers were amazed. "Deva has not been able to talk about her experiences for six months," said Vivien. "Evra is so open, and has the ability to make people feel relaxed in a way that other people can’t."
Deva's story had everyone in tears, but she felt better after telling it. Evra brought her friends outside and got them to pose for photos together.
