Welcome to Network For Adolescent and Youths of Africa (NAYA) - Kenya Chapter
The Network of Adolescent and Youth of Africa (NAYA) is a youth led regional advocacy network launched in October 2001 during the Second Adolescent International Conference convened by the African Regional Office of the Planned Parenthood Global.
NAYA is being implemented in Benin, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Sudan and Uganda since year 2002 with support from Planned Parenthood Global .
NAYA aims at enhancing the capacity of youth advocates to undertake Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (ASRH&R) advocacy by enlisting the support of policy makers, opinion leaders, donors, the media and like minded organizations and individuals in advocating for reforms and implementation of national policies and legislation to improve the quality and availability of Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (AS&RH&R) information and services.
NAYA implements advocacy, sensitisation, mobilization and public enlightenment at both national and community level
NAYA Kenya uses Participatory Education Theatre (PET) as an education-entertainment (E-E) model for community education
Media plays a very important role in bringing sexual health and rights issues to the fore front as development issues.
