“When I go for PE I can get my mind off a lot of things, it really refreshes my mind. I learn a lot of things when I go for PE because its not all about having fun and keeping fit, we learn a lot on HIV & AIDS, drugs and substance abuse and what our rights are as children.”

“My most treasured moment as a peer leader was when I worked with a young boy called Happy Gondwe. One day I had to leave him in charge of the group and when I came back I could have dropped tears because he used some of my words and gestures to successfully run the activities. This experience has made a great impact on my life as I have realised that the things I do, I have great impact on the lives of the youths I work with and those that on me in my community.”
