Peer tutoring training was done for 16 girls from five secondary schools in Galgaduud and Hiiran.

The two-day training was done in Guri-Ceel to give the girls skills to support marginalized primary school girls to help them with class work in order  to decrease drop-out rates and absenteeism.

The girls were trained on how to become peer tutors by building relationships with the girls they are training and to influence them by demonstrating appropriate behavior. They were also trained on how to facilitate tutoring sessions and lesson planning.
