Empowering Kibera's youth to talk to about sex, HIV/AIDS, and reproductive health.
Community theater, debates, school clubs and innovative door-to-door campaigns. These are but a few of the ways CFK’s fifty-two Peer Youth Educators educate their community about HIV/AIDS and reproductive health. Their light-hearted “edutainment” helps to break down the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS in Kibera while presenting vital information in a fun and memorable way. They also hand out thousands of condoms, conduct one-on-one counseling sessions and make referrals to Tabitha Clinic for family planning and testing. An estimated 10-25% of Kiberans are infected with HIV/AIDS. No person in Kibera, young or old, is untouched by the AIDS epidemic.
Peer Youth Educators collaborate with all CFK programs to offer HIV testing and private, on-site counseling at public events. These youth are determined to reduce HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases affecting their friends and family members.
