In Papua young teenagers are already having sex but education is still lacking. GIDI Baptist Church invited teenagers from surrounding villages in Wamena for a week-long crash course on sex education, family planning, condom, sexual transmitted diseases (STD), and HIV/AIDS. These young adults will return to their villages and serve as peer counselors providing information support. However, despite the program's effectiveness, YPKM is lacking funding to continue this important educational course.
