Kenya Change Agents brainstorming meeting! Kenya is back!

The old and new Kenyan team met in Nairobi to deliberate on ways to re-establish links with trained change agents across the country and the rest of the world. Present at the meeting were Carolyne L.A Onyango and John Oduor Onyang from Batch 4 and Per Wickenberg. Susan Njoki Githaiga who works with John in Kenya Alliance for the Advancement of Children´s Rights was in attendance.

The Meeting resolved to mobilize all the CRC trained change agents and other child rights actors in Kenya to create an active Kenyan platform that can spearhead child rights activities in Kenya. 

The team also agreed to engage other relevant stakeholders in their bid to bring the much-needed change in the lives of children and youth in Kenya.
