Alvin Mwangi- A champion Against Sexual Harassment in Public Transport Spaces with OAY-Kenya
I’m Alvin Mwangi, a 25-year-old youth advocate from Nairobi who is passionate about Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR). I have a 3-year-diploma for Social Work and Community Development, and I’m currently finalizing a certificate in Project Planning and Management. I have been working in the reproductive health sector for more than six years – my drive comes from working towards a positive change in the lives of young people.
My work has helped me extensively build my capacity for advocacy, SRHR information & services and sexual gender-based violence. I’m a Team Lead at Youth Empowerment Movement Kenya (YEM Kenya), a youth led organization that is strongly focusing on meaningfully engaging adolescents and young people. I have also actively engaged in digital and social media campaigns around Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights Issues.
Through YEM Kenya, I have spearheaded a robust online and offline campaign dubbed #KataaViolence on SGBV. It has provided others with access to information and services around reproductive health. My focus has been on ensuring that community health and social issues focus on the need for awareness and access to holistic health services. My goals are also nationalistic in that, I aim to develop policies on specific SRHR issues like access to information and services, as well as provision of Budgets that aid in implementation government programs that improve reproductive health for adolescents and young people.
I responded to a call for champ[ions against sexual harassment un public transport space with OAYouth Kenya in which I addressed the issues of SGBV in my capacity as a young person and how the factors contributing to this act can be mitigated.
