Grupo de Apoyo Este Amor

Este Amor was one of three Caribbean civil society organizations given CVC/COIN Mini-Grants of US$20,000 to pilot and help refine CVC/COIN’s Sex Positive approach to peer education. In October 2011, it chose 20 MSM from 15 to 19 years old to take four days of training guided by an early draft of the new CVC/COIN facilitator’s manual. At the end of this training, it chose eight to apply lessons as they conducted individual and group interventions in towns, villages and bateys (ethnic Haitian settlements) across the Province of San Pedro de Macorís, in the country’s Eastern Region.
