Reproductive Health Day 2010

by | Dec 9, 2010 | Uncategorized

Raising awareness on:

  • Taking joint responsibility in relationships
  • Menstruation and making your own towels
  • Risks of HIV and STD’s

What a success again!  This year we broke convention and invited girls and boys on the same day!  They were together for the morning session which included a movie and discussion on reproductive health issues and then in the afternoon the boys talked about HIV, drug and substance abuse while the girls talked about very practical ways of how to manage menstruation with demonstrations on how to make your own towels. 

A total of 63 Kesho sponsored students (30 girls and 33 boys) attended (aged 13 – 22 years) and some brought their friends along too.  More than half the students said they learned a lot about decision making in relationships and 13% said they learned the importance of self-esteem.

Experienced peer educators from Scope, Kilifi and Mr. John Lord from Mombasa helped host the day and did a great job putting everyone at ease and empowering them to feel free to ask all the important and pressing questions they had. 

Special thanks again to Upendo for the venue and delicious food and to the participants for their full participation and frankness. 

Christmas Craft Day 2010

Christmas Craft Day 2010

Another gorgeous Christmas Craft Day with children (parents, grandparents and younger siblings!) from Kesho and from Upendo creating beautiful beaded christmas tree decorations.  All the children got to take a pack of beads and thread home with them and the decorations were posted to sponsors – did you get yours?  

Thanks again to everyone who helped make it such a lot of fun and especially to Upendo Orphan Support Group for the venue and lovely sweet teas.DSC_0116_2.jpgDSC_0092.jpg
