Dear Partner and Friend


 What a wonderful feeling to speak to you about the progress being made in training health and human rights promoters in Kenya. Your support has enabled us to make tremendous steps in fighting for the rights of women and girls in our community. Today, we wish to tell you about Girango Dispensary community outreach where we training 40 adults on how to be the champions of positive change in their community.


When we came to you with appeals to support this project, we did not anticipate the impact it would have in fighting for the health and human rights of the community. Following the restrictions of movement due to the outbreak of Covid-19, we now realize how important it easy to have a health and human right promoter in at least every household. Our visit to Girango dispensary revealed that there are rising cases of domestic violence, teenage pregnancy, FGM, and child abuse. This may be because of the increased socio-economic pressure created by Covid-19. But we would be lying if we said that such problems are new; they have just become rampant.


The community members in Girango were taught on the reproductive health and rights of women and girls, the effects of child abuse, the health effects of FGM, and the need to be an empowered community in all spheres of life. Nyamira is among the counties in Kenya leading in cases of GBV, teenage pregnancy, and FGM. Therefore, it was so critical that Girango residents know how the problems are limiting their development as a community. We ended the session by creating action plans where each person trained explained what they planned to do, when, and how they will implement the actions so that the challenges explained can end.


Dear partner and friend, empowering the community is a journey that we are focussed on covering. We are humbled by your support. We urge you to continue supporting us through sharing information on this project with your friends and loved ones. We are hopeful that they will see the change you are making in the world. Thank you.
