Breaking Ground: Launching our campaign

Our group launch in Eldoret, Kenya
Our group launch in Eldoret, Kenya

We launched our ‘Break Ground: advance adolescent care in Kenya’ campaign on Wednesday evening in Eldoret, Kenya, at IU House, to coincide with GlobalGiving’s Emerging Organization Bonus Day. With peer mentors, clinicians, researchers, and students, we began the evening with a ‘fireside chat’ about adolescent care and HIV. 

The evening was filled with lively conversation led by the peer mentors about the challenges of being an HIV positive adolescent, providing peer mentorship, the difficulties they have faced, and where they have found strength and empowerment in their lives to become passionate youth leaders. The diversity of young people present and their unique stories underscored the critical need for an adolescent-friendly care program in the region.

To mark this occasion, we celebrated together with a special cake cutting performed by two of our peer mentors.

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been supportive of this initiative and the many individuals who have donated the past few days as we launched our campaign for adolescent care in Kenya! Your support will help us build the foundation of adolescent care in this region of Kenya and give youth hope for the future.

We look forward to updating you as we commence renovating our space and implementing new programs.
