The Legal Resources Foundation trained Children from Katsukunya Primary School and Katsukunya Secondary School  as Peer Legal Advisors (PLAs) in Mutoko and Epworth Districts. PLAs are trained on children’s rights and responsibilities, preventing different forms of child abuse and steps to take when abuse happens. The trained youths then educate their peers in their schools, churches and in their communities. Special care is taken to include children living with disabilities. The LRF visit the trained PLAs subsequently to mentor and monitor them. The results derived from the exercise demonstrated that PLAs have a positive impact in their communities. A female teacher from Katsukunye Secondary School testified that much to the surprise and delight of the school authorities, there has been no incident of a girl dropping out of school to get married since the PLAs started educating their peers.  She said she directly attributes this to the project as in the previous years; four to five girls got married mid-way through the school calendar year.
