Organisation d'accueil : Mama Na Dada Africa
Détails au sujet de l'organisation d'accueil : Mama na Dada Africa is a locally registered non-governmental organization, founded in 2000, with the main aim of preventing young females from becoming vulnerable to sexual exploitation, mental illness or drug related problems, stemming from negative social attitudes and actions towards women and/or insufficient exposure to positive role models. Mama na Dada has been one of the front runners in facilitating education for youth on sexual and mental health as well as HIV prevention. The organization appreciates the role of youth as change agents because they are, in many instances, more creative, risk tolerant and in touch with society's needs. Mama na Dada carries out an integrated peer education program which includes a youth exchange component, Stay Alive Youth Club. This youth wing of Mama na Dada, benefits from membership from various multiracial, religious and ethnic backgrounds in Kenya providing a rich intercultural exchange and learning forum for youths. This program continues to attract attention from a large number of other youth groups across the country and beyond.
