Young mums were enthusiastic and prepared to learn as evidence by their active participation and regular attendance.

VAPCares Covid-19 Response Initiative

Under the belt of ‘VAPCares Covid-19’ Response initiative, Naivas supermarket, one of Kenya’s leading chain of supermarkets teamed up with VAP to distribute food and other covid-19 protective items including; soap and sanitizers. The food drive campaign aimed at various underprivileged strong hold communities of VAP’s program. With the distribution strategy in place to avoid commotion and other dangers during the pandemic period, the distribution were done through door-to- door visits of program participants with some of their parents visiting the office in few numbers and in turns. Additional food stuff is given to program participants during program graduations
