YWCAAIDS :: WORLD AIDS DAY

Youth Community Outreach

YWCAA has in the past years partnered with the Global Fund through CARE, Kenya in reaching out to the youth with information and advocacy on HIV Counseling and Therapy. Among this group were Most at Risk Youth. along the beaches in Kisumu with information on HIV/AIDS and sexual reproductive health (SRH). The project also led to formation and maintenance of 58 groups comprising of both female and male youth. Overall, the program reached out to over 10,000 youth in the informal settlements of Nairobi, and over 300 youth conducting businesses along the beaches along Kisumu area with information on SRH, HIV/AIDS behaviour change and communication. There has been a continuous outcry from the community for continuity of this program, particularly to tackle issues related with sexual rights, GBV, drugs and substance abuse, unemployment and idleness among the youth.
