Getting Back to Schools
With the new curricula on board,”Skillz Mabeste” targeting the primary age group 9-14 years and “Skillz Mtaani” targeting the secondary age group 15-22 years,VAP started the Skillz Kenya program on a goal getting mission currently zeroing in 5 primary schools and 3 secondary schools. With each program tailor made and gelling well with the targeted age groups, both participants feel more comfortable in participating in various program activities and crucial discussion topics that create a fun and open environment of sharing: feelings, beliefs and ideas about HIV/AIDS that lead them into gaining necessary skills for hiv prevention and healthy lifestyles. Equipped with both program information, Skillz coaches feel more comfortable, focused and concentrated with the various topics, their key messages as well as the targeted program participants.
