The Take Control camp happened in August. During the camp period, Level One (Skills of Self) was implemented. The curriculum incorporated the same life skills under the self-category, but only focused on those throughout the week. More field sessions were featured and each day began by introducing the topics in the rugby pitch.

The camp happened at St. Benedict Primary School. It had 150 children (79boys, 71girls) between the ages of 10-15yrs.  The camp was Faciltated by 14 facilitators (5female, 9male) and 3 professional counsellors (2female,1 male).

The image of the SRF Bus was introduced, showing students that life skills and values work together to get us from where we are to where we are going. Life skills and values are what helps us navigate life. Topics presented throughout the week included self-awareness, self-esteem, managing stress and emotions, sexuality, and values.

The most understood constructs by the students included; self-value, self-worth, feelings, emotions, stress, sexuality, self-confidence, awareness around me, and rights to my own body. The table below shows the percentages of correct responses based on topics covered

Take Conrol! Building Resilience in Nairobi slums has recieved a total of $ 5283.33 in disbursement funds from globalgiving.  We would like to thank you for playing a major role in promoting the work done by Shamas Rugby Foundation.

The amount we recieved still remains in our account. This is because Take Control! camps are conducted during school holidays when most of the children are available. These holidays fall in the Months of April, August and December.

With the money in our account, we have planned for the August to reach 120 chlildren for a period of one week. The budget explainig how the money will be spent has been attached in this report.

The camp will focus on teaching children skills of understanding oneself.  This will cover topics like;  Values, Self-Awareness, Self-Esteem, Managing Stress and Emotions, and Sexuality.

We really look forward to having a successful camp in August after which we will provide a more detailed report on the impact of Take Control!.
