This study essentially aimed to establish if there is a peer education programme at Mnambithi TVET College focusing on SRH and HIV prevention and whether the services rendered are adolescent and youth friendly. It therefore investigated the status of these two factors, identified gaps and proposed solutions. The report begins with a brief discussion of what the study was about, how it was conceptualised and what it aimed to achieve. It then provides a background of what adolescent and youth friendly services and peer education are highlighting the relevance of this study. The report also presents a brief background on Mnambithi TVET College, as well as an account of the geographical distribution of IHLs in ILembe, UGu, UMkhanyakude, UThukela and Zululand districts of KZN, including the mapping of the SRHR and HIV prevention peer education programmes identified in these institutions. This is followed by an overview of the work done in UThukela district around AYFS thus far, before discussing the research methodology employed for the study and the limitations encountered. The analysis of the data is presented, followed by a summary of the findings, and recommendations on how to improve the peer education practice and delivery of SRH services at Mnambithi TVET College. The final part of this report includes a proposed action plan that aims to address the challenges identified.
