Nairobi’s community organisations are working hard to tackle issues ranging from youth unemployment and drug abuse, to the spread of HIV/AIDS. In recent years, there has been a high rate of HIV infections amongst young people aged 14-25 because of a lack of awareness programmes in schools and local communities.

 

It is for this reason that Vijana Amani Pamoja (VAP) was created. With the goal of educating young people about hygiene and health practices, VAP has a strong emphasis on creativity and critical thinking.

 

One of the organisation’s main programmes, SKILLZ Kenya, was developed in collaboration with streetfootballworld and Grassroot Soccer to use football to fight HIV/AIDS; enabling the young people to become educators themselves and conduct peer trainings in their own communities on how to lead a healthy life. VAP also hosts Vocational Training, which helps young people acquire skills
