Because of ARI, Retno gained a lot of knowledge and learned many new skills. Through trainings organized by ARI, in cooperation with CHOICE, Retno learned about different aspects of young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights. She was also taught how to manage social media.
Retno: “Now that I’m with ARI, I am able to organize community social media and participate in sessions about young people’s issues with my peers.” Retno also experienced changes in her behavior. She’s now more open to other people and cares for those who need her. Becoming a peer educator might have been the most important change for Retno: “I am part of youth and I can help other young people and be their friend if they need advice from me”.
