Small Group Facilitation for Young First-Time Mothers in Akwa Ibom, Nigeria A Supplemental Training Module for Facilitators

This training aims to impart the skills needed for peers to facilitate small groups of young married women and first-time parents (FTPs), which can reduce these young women’s social isolation and increase knowledge of sexual and reproductive health. This training is designed for use in Nigeria, where a significant proportion of adolescent girls aged 15–19 and young women aged 20–24 are married or living in union, but it can easily be adapted for other settings.This  training is intended for young married women and first-time parents who will facilitate small groups of their peers, where they can discuss sexual and reproductive health and contraception, as well as participate in activities (using the GREAT Activity Cards) that help them build problem-solving skills and better negotiate the pressures they face to have children.
