Successful First Training Camp of 2019
January Health and Leadership Training
Greetings from Enoosean,
Thank you for supporting our Health and Leadership Training program! With your support, we are changing the lives of at-risk youth in rural Kenya.
In January, our team kicked off 2019 with a two-day training for three primary schools in our region. The training reached 162 girls and 187 teenage boys from these three schools.
During these two days, the students participated in highly interactive and engaging discussions and activities. The students learned core life skills, how they can be applied in real-life situations and their benefit to individuals and entire communities. After attending our training, the students return home to share what they have learned with their families and communities. Our trainings not only impact the students who attend, but also the lives of those around them.
Our trainers led discussions on gender equality, sexual and gender based violence, HIV/AIDS, and sexual and reproductive health rights throughout training. Additionally, they introduced self defense to the girls as a tool they can use to avert sexual violence and other gender based violence. Sexual and gender based violence is a heartbreaking reality in our community, which motivates us to continue to expand our work and empower young people throughout rural Kenya with these skills and lessons.
We look forward to the next training and thank you for your contribution! We are so grateful to have you as a partner in this transformational work.
