In rural Kenya youth groups use oral and dance traditions to raise awareness about HIV. This group, called Janga Gumu, performs locally near the Ziani Primary School. Performance groups deliver messages about the hardships and challenges faced by orphans and vulnerable children. CRS supports these youth and 3,300 others in the Kilifi area with a range of support.
In Kenya, an estimated 1.6 million children have lost one or both parents to AIDS. Through community-based assistance from programs such as The Children Behind project, orphans and other vulnerable children are receiving the social, physical, medical, emotional and educational support they need to live more healthy, happy lives.
