Activity Highlights

  1. Human Rights Education

COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the world in many negative ways and Kwale County has not been left behind. As captured in the background, a large number of community members have been affected economically, socially, and/or politically. The youth and young children have not been left behind as they are a by-product of the effect of the virus on their parents and/or guardians and the system. This being the case, the closure of educational institutions has negatively affected their normal schedules and deviant behavior has manifested as seen in the rise of cases of teenage pregnancies. Also observed are the additional responsibilities that they have been given by their care-takers due to the strain in financial status in many households.

As such, Peace Tree Network conducted four training workshops on Human Rights Education in Msambweni, Lunga Lunga, Kinango, and Matuga. This training targeted teenagers from the ages of 16yrs, parents, teachers, and community leaders. A total of 60 participants took part in this four-day workshop in their respective areas in the months of July and August 2020.
