NAME: Alex Wainaina
COURSE: HIV & AIDS Couselling
After undertaking courses in NCCK on HIV/AIDS I realised that our young people engage themselves in drug abuse, illegal movements/sects and pre-mature sex after undergoing initiation rite. I came up with an idea which the Council embraced on boys and girls passage rite.
We started the initiation of boys in a secondary school where at the start, we had twenty boys in 2005 where boys were taught by different mentors on different things. This drastically changed the church and families for boys became more responsible and obedient to their parents. This program is still functional todate. In the side of girls, we educated them for three days after that they became more responsible and aware of their life stages.
This encourages me much for I have realized that the future of our nation, church and community lies in the hands of young people who need mentoring and counselling.
