Success Stories

In June 2015, the communications and coaching program was offered to a diverse gathering of individuals who provide technical assistance in LMG. Four months later, participants were overwhelmingly positive about the value of the skills learned through the program. Two of the organizations -International Planned Parenthood Federation Africa Region and partner Reproductive Health Uganda- undertook steps to institutionalize the practices and incorporated many of the skills into their own peer coaching program for youth.
