On Thursday, 14th September 2018, the Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) Youth Program with Support from the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and African Youth Network, embarked on a fact finding mission to establish how effective the Youth Engagement Strategy (YES) has been. YES was initiated 3 years back. This process was piloted with over 40 Red Cross Youth from Nairobi County taking part in the process, led by 8 trained YES Self-Assessment Toolkit Facilitators. KRCS, aims to have this assessment done with youth representation from all the 47 Counties in an effort to better provide youth relevant programming and meaningful engagement while impacting young people in Kenya for humanitarian, socio-economic, civic and personal /professional development.
The KRCS Youth Program will continue to conduct these assessment in an attempt to reach a larger number of youth in Kenya.
