We climaxed the month of September with a sensitization forum at Christ the King Church, in Kangemi.The essence of the forum was to sensitize the motor bike riders also known as Boda- Boda riders] on Gender Based Violence [GBV], HIV/AIDS prevention and ultimately to work together in creating an environment where women and young girls are safe especially while using public transport.  70 Boda-Boda riders attended the workshop and pledged to be the lead ambassadors in protecting women and young girls who in most cases are taken advantage of, especially in a slum setup like that of Kangemi. 

At the end of the forum we were energized by the public pledge by a one Patrick a Boda-Boda rider had this to say “…From today on wards I take it upon myself to advise young girls I would encounter on how best to stay safe especially while interacting with my colleagues in the business of Boda-Boda and I will not hesitate to report anyone to the competent authority, who will be involved in any act or omission that would undermine the dignity of the girl child in Kangemi slums and beyond”.

We are very grateful to our friends and well-wishers who generously support our development programmes in Kangemi slums.
