GHC is beginning to develop Community Health and Empowerment Clubs (CHECs) in the Kisii, Kenya area (47 villages). Working with various local partners, GHC will initiate Community Health and Empowerment Clubs for young adults (i.e., NextGen) in 2021 and following years. Research has shown CHEC activities are very effective in spreading health knowledge and helping with economic development in surrounding villages.
Kenya GHC staff participated in an apprenticeship with AfricaAhead NGO from October 2020 to March 2021 to learn about how to conduct CHECs, as well as water and sanitation and other health related curriculum. Economic-oriented lessons are being developed now!
GHC has already collected statistics and surveyed households in the Mokuba Village for a baseline. Health and hygiene education is underway, and economic empowerment is coming soon!
GHC plans to develop vocational training, microfinance loans, and basic business skill curriculum as well.
Biombe Village and Nyanturago Village household surveys have been initiated and CHEC participants are being recruited now!
After effectiveness of the initial GHC CHECs has been confirmed, GHC will scale up CHECs to be available to other locations in Kenya and possibly other nations.
