We Are Empowered!

New HIV soldiers

As August school holiday was beckoning, a number of Skillz Kenya program participants in both primary and secondary schools were confirmed as HIV ambassadors and community agents of change. Skillz coaches were busy confirming participants of both Skillz Mtaani (primary schools) and Skillz Mabeste (secondary schools) with certificates that would officially enable graduates to share HIV information with their peers, families and the entire community all under one word ‘Prevention’. “I have been informed about HIV am ready to share information with my friends to prevent it.” Said 14 years old Rafael from Outering primary school.

 Employment + Entrepreneurship

With majority of ‘Employment+ Entrepreneurship’ project participants being girls and young women, VAP had to heed to the call of including boys into the program. This has been as a result of popular demand and feedbacks collected from the community and the program boys participants. Skillz Kenya that addresses HIV awareness, and ‘Heshima’ program that addresses positive masculinity amongst boys and men through the platform of football, are two key programs that are used as springboards to recruiting boys into Economic + Entrepreneurship’ project. Amongst the courses taken by boys include: Catering, pastry, cookery, electronics, tailoring etc.
