Moving the Goalposts
Kenya has the joint fourth-largest HIV epidemic in the world and adolescent girls and young women account for up to 21% of all new HIV infection.
Tibu and other Young Leaders are integrating HIV education into weekly football sessions and create a safe and supportive space to discuss sensitive issues through the Moving the Goalposts project.
As a result, the girls will have a better understanding of how to reduce HIV infections, challenge important gender stereotypes in the community, and create a supportive network to develop relationships, knowledge and skills.
“It is football that brings every girl together. The knowledge that they get really helps them and also their family and the community,” said Young Leader Tibu, 18
This project is delivered in partnership with Moving the Goalposts Kilifi and Tackle Africa.
