What We Do
YCK works with young women to provide knowledge and skills to participate in policy spaces at county, national, regional and international level.
Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights
YCK uses soccer to disseminate sexual reproductive health and rights information and services among girls and young women in rural and peri-urban settlements. Topics addressed include: sexuality, safe sex, healthy relationships, HIV, STI’s, consent, menstrual hygiene, and contraceptives.
Mental Health and Wellness
YCK provides individual and group counseling services. Our mental health program seeks to increase knowledge levels on mental wellness and emotional well being.
Sexual Violence Advocacy & Education
YCK strengthens the capacity of key gate keepers (magistrates, religious leaders, police, chiefs, community volunteers, community village units, gender officers, children officers, community activists and the police) on their role in addressing sexual violence.
We work with girls to provide an understanding of the referral pathways of sexual violence. We provide trauma counseling to sexual violence survivors.
YCK’s Girls’ Education program aims to reintegrate teen mothers back to school and ensure that they complete their secondary education. YCK also provides psychosocial support, and provision of information on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights to enable them to make informed choice.
We have now supported 11 teen mothers who have completed their education and are considering furthering their education or gaining skills to support themselves and their children.
