Our projects in Kenya often include the overlapping themes of gender equality and environmental protection. We also actively advocate for knowing your HIV status.
Save the Children staff in Kenya piloted a unique approach to engage men in HIV and AIDS prevention measures, creating ‘Men of Excellence’ groups. This novel approach has proven successful in helping men overcome their fear of testing to know their HIV status. We’re also helping raise awareness through a documentary film featuring Save the Children employee, Josphat Mwiringi, who has lived with HIV and AIDS for 20 years.
In 2010 our work directly benefited 45,000 girls and boys living in Kenya and 32,000 adults. Another 88,000 people have benefited indirectly.
