Activity Purpose/ Summary:
The purpose of the session was to educate the children about peer pressure, both positive and negative, and how to deal with negative peer pressure. The lesson began with a round of Simon Says to engage the children, followed by a skit illustrating what peer pressure could look like. Peer pressure was then explained further and categorized into positive and negative examples, with input from the children. Finally, several strategies for dealing with negative peer pressure were taught, and the skit was reenacted to demonstrate how the children could intervene and change the outcome by employing the new strategies.

Personnel Input:
Siri Lindblad and Katrin Aigner collaborated in planning and conducting the activity together. Diannah Rose also contributed by assisting with the skit, providing further explanations, and translating into Kiswahili when English was insufficient. Their combined efforts ensured the success of the lesson.

We successfully achieved a better understanding of peer pressuring and, most importantly, how to deal with it by introducing various strategies to the children.

Unanticipated Achievements:
The children provided numerous examples of both positive and negative peer pressuring situations from their own lives, which was excellent. This personal connection allows for a deeper understanding of the concept and increases the likelihood of them implementing the strategies for dealing with it in their own lives.
