(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) UNFPA's ten-day Y-Peer (youth peer education network) campaign that has been centered in Muscat and Buraimi governorates, will conclude on Tuesday. The campaign is part of an effort by a volunteer group to raise awareness on topics like HIV/AIDS and women and youth empowerment.

The theme for the event this year was 'A World We All Want' and was followed in over 40 countries.

It was organised with the participation of youth groups, charitable organisations, international agencies and government authorities.

Some of the activities organised included awareness talks in primary and secondary schools by volunteers throughout Muscat and Buraimi. The volunteers also engaged tourists in the campaign.

In addition, volunteers interacted with the general public about the Y-Peer scheme and the work they have done so far. Brochures, USBs and water bottles were given out during the campaign.

The Y-Peer programme is a youth-to-youth initiative pioneered by the United National Populations Fund (UNFPA) and includes a network of over 1,000 non-profit organisations and government institutions. 

According to UNFPA, the network aims to raise awareness among young people about key issues affecting them in an interactive and diverse way.
