In and Out of School Youth Education

One of WAAF (plus) target group is the youth, both in and out of school.  Educating the youth allows for WAAF (plus) to reach out to a promising group  in terms of prevention and inducing behavioral change. For years therefore, WAAF has invested much of its efforts in reaching out to the youth and some of the gains chalked are: the Passion Squad clubs in various schools in the country, inter schools competition in drama shows/poems writing and citation, drawing but also quizzes.

Apart from these innovative approaches, WAAF (plus) continues also to give regular workshops to many school children across the country.  The out of school youth belong to a more vulnerable group and as such extra effort is put into interventions targeting them. From the usage of video films & drama, to one on one approach, group education etc, these target groups are reached.

Over the years we have been able to reach out to many youth on the street, but also apprentices with education especially related to their Sexual and Reproductive Health.
