On__ Stowelink in partnership with the NCD Alliance of Kenya hosted a global webinar to talk about NCDs and the youth. This webinar was very timely as it talked on the reasons why young people need to be in the fight against NCDs and why it was important to learn and understand how to do advocacy now and in the future.
The webinar was moderated by Dr Eva Njenga the NCDs alliance of Kenya chair who shared critical input on the work that the NCD alliance of Kenya is doing in ensuring that the government and civil societies continue to advocate for the rights and privileges of the NCDs community.
The human interest story and the lived experiences were shared by Moses Omondi who talked on how our voices are indeed our strength. The power of lived experiences and the power of stories was noted as a critical tool for advocacy now and in the future.
Collins Ongola, Stowelink CFO and youth advocate talked in detail about what young people could be able to do to join the NCDs youth champions movement. A movement dedicated to ensuring the youth voices in the NCDs space are able to be heard. He also talked in detail about the future of advocacy noting that research and technology will be critical.
Finally, Ogweno Stephen, founder Stowelink talked in detail about the various ways of advocacy and what works for the different age groups. This included and in-depth analysis of how the use of both online and offline technologies are and will continue to become critical in the NCDs advocacy.
In summary, we need to act and we need to do it now with the youth at the fore front learning about and fighting NCDs at all levels of their life.
