I will like to find out how you plan to sustain this initiative since products and services will be given free.

Thanks Mr Agaba for your interest in the E-Safex Clinc Project. Nominating the peers is still an issue we are still trying to full wrap our head around but for now now we are planning to advertise for interested students through posters, handbills etc and then carry out some form of interview/pre-selection process to identify those most suited for the project. As per motivation, they will earn commission on all products sold either directly or through referral and as you suggest there will be annual awards for best performing peers.

Dear Anne, Thanks for your comment and the links which are quite useful. At the moment, a WhatsApp group can not take more than 256 members hence the limit of 254 members plus the WhatsApp group administrator who is a trained peer provider (Positive Actor) and the Positive Consultant. We also think the figure 254 is a good number for an individual to manage for now. As we progress, we hope a Positive Actor will be able to manage 3 to 4 WhatsApp groups 750 - 1000 members.
The Project is still in the concept stage which we are hoping to commence pilot implementation with 10 groups in a few weeks and scale up to after about 6 months.
