Millennium Fellowship Project: Play Smart
Play Smart aims to educate youths in Kenya and later on all over the world on the importance of sex education and related topics. The topics covered by the project range from hygiene to contraception to understanding different bodies and so on. The vision of the project is to equip youths with the knowledge to make informed decisions concerning sexual matters. Between August to November 2020, the projects aim to reach at least 500 people by holding 1 session per month on campus and 1 session per month off-campus with a minimum outreach of 15 people for each session.
