16-year-old Yesmin is a peer educator in the Jamuna youth group in the Dholpur slum. She is a 10th-grade student and the oldest of three siblings at home. Before joining the Jamuna youth group, she was always very reticent and isolated. Yesmin would always feel nervous about participating in any activity.

When she became a member of the youth group, positive changes started to happen. She received training on children’s rights and protection, gender rights, reproductive health, sports and drama performances. Gradually, she overcame her nervousness. Because of her desire to learn, the group chose her as a peer educator. Under Yesmin’s leadership, the youth group organised drama learning activities to raise awareness of children’s rights. In addition to group learning courses, she also shared with her school friends about children’s rights, reproductive health, hygiene practices, and gender issues. Yesmin actively participated in and promoted group and project activities.

Yesmin shared her feeling: ‘I am very happy to participate in the activities of the Jamuna youth group. I have changed myself and become stronger and more confident. I also encourage all my friends to keep a positive learning attitude. Our community will get rid of the impact of child marriage and all children will go to school. We will have a peaceful society in the future.’
