Photo from the Field: May 29, Kenya

Photo from the Kwacha Afrika Facebook group.

On May 29th, Kwacha Afrika, dance4life and YCI hosted a talent show in Likoni, Kenya, with a focus on HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. Along with condom demonstrations, talent show attendees had access to free voluntary counseling and testing services. Not only was the crowd impressive (see the above photo!)–so were the performances. Following the show, four performers were awarded contracts with record producers for the best songs with messages about HIV/AIDS.

The 10-week Youth Ambassadors group that is currently in Kenya is halfway through their project and still have one month left in-country. This weekend the group, in partnership with Kwacha, will be hosting a free drama presentation with messages about HIV/AIDS at a local youth centre.

Next up? MUNHOPE will be starting their Youth Leadership Team project in Mombasa on July 26.
