In pursuit of creating awareness for Nilinde Program, the Wounded Healers foundation Kenya set a five-day training in Bungoma County from 8th to 12th of February training facilitators on the Nilinde curriculum. Nilinde is a Swahili word meaning protect.
The session acquired 10 facilitators who are locals of Cheptais and Chesikaki Communities respectively. The individuals were trained on how to deliver the 8-chapter Nilinde curriculum to the target audiences.
Wounded Healers provided the facilitators with and Certificates Corporate branded T-shirts which they will put on when delivering the Nilinde Project, as it speaks for uniformity of our brand identity.
Given the relevance of the Nilinde Project, Wounded healers met with prospective partners from the health depart, children department and education department, who were welcoming to the project and willing to offer information in terms of data and statistics of the target group.
Our first school visit was at Mulatiwa Secondary School a mixed school where the Nilinde program was briefly introduced and a pad drive exercise was also carried out.
The students were taught on reproductive health, menstrual care and hygiene, and free sanitary towels were offered to the girls’.
