Challenge

Teenage pregnancies and vulnerability to HIV/AIDS are the main health problems faced by girls and young women in Kilifi. They have very poor access to reproductive health information and services. This projects offers girls up to date information on HIV and the services that are available locally. The project will be high impact because it is led by peers who are trustworthy, knowledgeable and understanding, giving vulnerable girls a safe space in which to voice their adolescent concerns.

Solution

1. HIV training for 40 girls: increase knowledge and understanding of HIV prevention and services. 2. Peer education sessions with groups of girl footballers: increased knowledge and confidence contribute to reduction in teenage pregnancies

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide up-to-date information on reproductive health, HIV and local health services to help up to 3000 girl footballers make informed decisions on their sexual and reproductive health.
