Summary Description of your Organization
COFAS works around three thematic areas including Health, Gender Based Violence and Education. COFAS envision a stable community defined with equity, independence and prosperity, fully equipped with lasting mechanisms for development. COFAS mission is to establish and promote community development in sustainable measures and bring solutions to education, gender based violence and health challenges that affect the communities. It is in line with this that we work with women, adolescents, girls, youth and young women (AGYW). We have trained them on Leadership and Management in issues affecting their lives. COFAS also run awareness and mentorship programmes with the AGYW through their clubs. The AGYW including those living on the streets have been sensitized on issues including adolescent development, reproductive health issues-Children rights, STIs and HIV/AIDS, Drug and Substance Abuse among others. Our mentorship programme has mobilized successful women and men role models who have met and shared the challenges they went through on the way to their success as well as imparting good values
COFAS members have also been engaged in philanthropic activities by assisting young girls and boys who have dropped out of school due to poverty or teenage pregnancies to get back to school by supporting them with school fees payment. Currently COFAS is supporting 3 boys and 5 girls to stay in school the oldest is a 22 years old girl who is a first year communication student at the Great Lakes University in Kisumu amongst others.
