Promise Hill Project Kenya held our first Teen Outreach event of 2023. It was held in Ngangu Secondary school. A total of 25 participants attended this outreach. Participants were ages 15-18 years.
Each participant received 50 meals, 84 period kits (equal to 4 cycles), and 147 pairs of panties (equal to a full week of underwear for each girl).
Most of the day’s work was done via Plenary Discussion. This made it possible to cover a lot of content faster and in a participatory manner.
Topics covered with this method include:
- Introduction: what is mental health
- Part of Self awareness
- Unhealthy ways of coping with emotions/ coping mechanisms
- Effective communication
- Decision making (problem solving)
- Goal setting
Promise Hill Project’s heart is full. We are extremely grateful to our volunteer, Jacque, for her expertise in Social Work and her ongoing compassion to help the youth in Kenya. We love you, Jacque!
