As a build up activity from a previously conducted training with the CHESS advocates and religious leaders, INERELA+ Kenya was able to have key discussions virtually in order to better address challenges affecting young people and with the advent of the current COVID 19 pandemic, these discussions were vital, where they brought a sprout up of hidden issues among young people that were better handled and addressed with the help of the faith leaders, who were on board to provide guidance and support.
