As WFAD continues in its consultation and engagement in the East African Network on Prevention, the Liaison Representative has also been involved in the mentorship programmes which form part of the core functions of the office.
Among others, they include:
1) A visit to MCFPA, a Network partner organization that is active in empowering young women with a special focus on making renewable sanitary towels, which are very helpful to the low-income communities
2) Mentorship sessions in several primary and high schools between February and March, with its main theme as “The Making of a Real Man and a Real Woman” in the 21st Century
3) A study of the Kenyan Coastal cultural practice (called Pokomo) regarding family and its effects among young people’s lives as they start their families
