We at SEAM have finally come to the end of our youth and parents, HIV prevention training. We have received positive feedback from both the parents and their children, who feel they have gained a generous amount of knowledge on HIV/AIDs prevention, and knowledge on how to engage with their children in the fight to prevent this deadly virus.
The horticultural club has been preparing seedlings of vegetables in their shed-net in readiness for the planting season. The club had trainings in different vegetable planting techniques, which each member will launch in their homes as kitchen gardens. They are also preparing for an upcoming Kenya Horticultural Society, Kisumu plant sale.
We also had a charity event where we gave out blankets and cutlery to members who the community who were in need.
SEAM has had a productive year despite the covid-19 pandemic. We have managed to provide the children and their parents with our services while observing all Covid protocols.
We are continuing with our HIV/AIDS awareness project. We have currently completed our trainings with the children and adolescents, and are now providing trainings and psychoeducation to the parents, on how to become effective participants in their children’s lives when in come to HIV/AIDS preventions. These services have been provided outdoors while ensuring mask and sanitization protocols and observing public gathering rules, with regards to number of people permitted.
We are also continuing with our founding agendas of self-sustainability, climate change impacts, life skills & economic empowerment, while remembering to always use mental health and health in general as our guiding compass.
As mentioned in the last report, we started an HIV/AIDs outreach project, to help educated children-adolescents and their parents on the subject. Since then, we have managed to reach just over 360 youth, who have also been assessed for areas of concern. SEAM has has facilitated this programme to children from schools in the area, who are not yet members of the SEAM programme.
As for the children of SEAM, who did take part in the HIV/AIDs intervention, they are also continuing with the their regular projects and mentorships. Our latest volunteer mentor has been teaching the children how to make their own bags, which they can use to carry their school books.
The youth are also carrying on with their farming and tree nursery projects where they continue to learn about their environments and ways of preserving them. We hope this road will lead down the path to programmes where the children can learn more about climate change, and what roles they can play to help make a difference. We are teaching them about the carbon prints we all contribute towards and what changes the future holds for us all.
