The Kisumu fashion week finally went down with local designers and models showcasing their talent and work at Tuff Foam mall.

The successful event attended by Kisumu First Lady Olivia Ranguma among other county stakeholders was supported by a number of organizations with KMET as the only Reproductive Health partner.

Prior to the event, KMET conducted informative reproductive health discussions with the models to sensitize them on their rights to access reproductive health information and services.

The models were also sensitized on the efficiency and convenience of Long Acting and Reversible contraceptives (LARC) in preventing unwanted pregnancies among young people hence, take part in reduction of maternal mortality as a result of unsafe abortion.

KMET did not only provide the RH education to the models but also felt obligated to sponsor the event given its varied engagements with young people on RH issues within the county.

The event was well attended by young people, partners as well as county officials.
