Kmet signed an MOU with six other partners within the Kisumu Brain Trust (KBT) Network to implement a program meant to empower adolescent girls and young women on reproductive health.

The partners from Precious Tear Initiative, Technoserve Kenya, Mercy Compassionate, Tegemeo Pamoja, Tembea Youth Center and Watoto Musiliye Organization agreed to partner with Kmet to train girls and young women on advocacy with regard to Sexual Reproductive Health issues.

Kmet’s Youth Empowerment Coordinator, Jenipher Musuya said the trainings are expected to enable the girls and young women to make informed choices on their sexual and reproductive life as well as educate their peers within the community.

She added that the program would not only impart knowledge on reproductive health and advocacy skills, but also link the girls to youth friendly facilities where they can easily access family planning services and information.

Kisumu Brain Trust (KBT) is a network of organizations working on girl child programs in Migori, Kisumu and Siaya Counties.

Kmet’‘s major role is to capacity build the partners in advocacy to enhance their impact at the community level on Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health Rights(ASRHR).

  2. Dear Colleague,
    I work as a PMTCT Technical Advisor supporting Kisii, Migori, Nyamira and Narok. We haved noted with great concern that there is a glaring gap in adolescent health during our accelerated care and treatment meeting with Kisii and Migori counties in Creadex hotel Migori. Migori is highly affected and needs to have adolescent health supported through your RH program in Migori. skilled deliveries are also low and this contributes to PMTCT leaking cascade.
