Youth groups in Roysambu sub-county (Nairobi), were trained on Climate Change and NCDs by Stowelink. Stowelink has been implementing the Co-benefit NCDs and Climate Change project in partnership with the Non-Communicable Diseases Alliance Kenya (NCDAK). The aim of the project being to reduce the negative impact and vulnerability of Non-communicable Diseases among young people. It seeks to build the capacity of young people in under-resourced communities to mitigate the NCD vulnerability and its impact through healthy diet, physical activities, and climate change education while leveraging technology and innovation.
Stowelink representatives met with the following youth groups for the training sessions:
•Githurai Social Justice
•Young and Old
•Youth @ Heart
•Casino Youth Group
The trained groups are set to be NCD Champions who will train other members of the community on Non-communicable Diseases awareness, prevention and management. They were also sensitized on Climate Change, how it exacerbates NCDs prevalence and how they can contribute in mitigating the effects of climate change.
Apart from the physical training sessions, the trainees also get to do a course on NCDs in Public Health in Udemy where they can get certificates. They are also shown how to use the NCDs 365 App to learn about more NCDs and share it with the community.
