Adolescent and Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (AYSRHR)

Youth Empowerment through Sport in Kenya (YES Kenya) in collaboration with Jhpiego's G-Amini are organising events to sensitise youth on health education, especially sexual and reproductive health rights.

YES Kenya has been working hand in hand with Jhpiego's youth wing G-Amini on matters of health education. The programme is targeting youth between 10 and 30 years old, from the rural communities of Suna East constituency.

The two organisations have held events targeting youth on responsible sexual behaviour and sex education. Over the last month, the two organisations launched a girls for girls initiative that saw 21 girls undergoing mentorship on how to take control of their lives. The 21 youth champions graduated on 26 March 2018 as youth ambassadors who will champion the #GirlsforGirls agenda among their fellows.

Yet again, the two organisations are destined to showcase a demonstration on how sports can be used to address health related issues. The demonstration dubbed Sports for Health and Wellness will showcase how the HIV/AIDS pandemic can be addressed through sports. Additionally, the demos will also include children rights and resource management. The event is set to take place on 1 May 2018 at Osingo Mixed Secondary School.
