Local partner

The project will deliver change through sport for adolescent girls and young women in Dagoretti and Mukuru. The three sports that will be utilised are football, volleyball and taekwondo. Through bi-monthly sports bonanzas, Amref Health Africa will partner with local sports associations to train young coaches and referees. These events will allow young leaders to be supported to plan tournaments in football, volleyball and taekwondo, which will take place twice a year.

Alongside coaching sport and leadership, community health workers will also attend Sports Bonanza events to promote sexual health services and train young peer educators to pass on information and help to signpost services.
