"I realized most girls get lost just because they do not have someone to guide them. I have therefore made it my business to guide them. From the financial capabilities classes, I started a chicken project using a loan I got from our girl’s savings and loans group. Currently, I have 20 chickens. I thank IRDO for every opportunity they create for me to champion Prep; a drug that can help girls to avoid HIV infection, especially girls who are married like me"

“I am glad IRDO saw the need to have these outreaches which have helped many of us in the community to fight malaria. Today I go back home with my net with confidence that my unborn baby is protected from malaria.”

“One day, Naftali (IRDO Mobilizer in Turkana Central) approached me and explained why I should go for circumcision. The moment he was through with his talk, I asked him to take me to where I will get the service. I now realize that what I was lacking is that inter-personal interaction with a mobilizer to give me the much needed push.”

"I was able to confidently negotiate with clients and compel them to use condom because of the skills I was equipped with through trainings sponsored by IRDO. We were also given condoms and lubricants for free,”

Fighting TB
“I do not smoke nor take alcohol plus my roommate was very healthy so I did not understand where I got TB from but what I know is that I will be well and will go back to school. I knew one could have TB and not be HIV positive,”
