This week marks a successful conclusion of USAID Nawiri’s intensive One-week training series for 57 mentors (37 Female and 20 Male), dedicated to supporting Girl-H and Boy Groups in Lokichar and Kalokol Wards in Turkana County. The mentors serve as crucial frontline workers, actively engaged in training and coaching our targeted anchor group participants with tailored messages.
This Financial Literacy and Business Education training for Lokichar and Kalokol Ward mentors stands as another milestone in our commitment to empowering youth towards resilience in the communities. Mr. Francis Edome, the Project Coordinator leading the training, emphasized the significance of these program trainings, stating, “Our program trainings are designed to bolster the capacity of Group Mentors for meaningful engagement in livelihood activities, cultivate personal agency and enhance adaptive skills among Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) as well as Adolescent Boys and Young Men (ABYM) within communities.”
At the closing of the training, Anjelina Morung`ole a mentor for Alakara Girl Group, expressed satisfaction with the training, saying “We express gratitude for the transformative financial literacy and business education training and the effort of Nawiri in collaborating with our communities to sustainably reduce Persistent Acute Malnutrition (PAM). This training has provided us with essential skills for empowering our group mentees on Financial Literacy.”
Nawiri’s commitment to collaboration and local empowerment is evident through its continued partnership with local implementing partners such as FCDO. This collaborative approach ensures the sustainability of interventions beyond the program period, aligning with Nawiri’s dedication to enhancing livelihoods and personal agency for youth in the communities they serve.
