Youth on the Move yearly selects twelve marginalized youth who are ambitious but have low self-esteem and miss the hope for a good future.
In one year they are trained as peer educators through classes on culture and identity, teamwork, youth participation, coaching, lifestyle, and entrepreneurship.
Every month the offered training is closed off with an exam. The youth practice their skills in our training center, at the Epilepsy Clinics at Baraka Health center in Mathare slums of Nairobi run by German doctors and at MSF clinic in Kibera slums of Nairobi run by AMREF in partnership with the County Government of Nairobi.
The youths also give epilepsy education in faith-based organizations; learning institutions, support groups for adults and youths.
Due to social restrictions imposed by the government through the Ministry of health to help curb the spread of coronavirus, the monthly Sikika meetings have been going on through the zoom platform, where the youths were actively involved by sharing and participating in various topic of discussions.
