Today’s adolescents and young adults, ages 10 to 24, are one of the largest generations ever. Nearly 2 billion strong, they are over one quarter of the global population. About 90% of them live in low- and middle-income countries. Most are healthier compared to other age groups, but they also face risks as they mature, explore the world around them and develop new capacities. With knowledge, skills and social support, most adolescents and youth can stay healthy by adopting healthful behaviors and by avoiding risks that would jeopardize their current and future health and longevity.


Action For Research and Development (AFORD) is an indigenous Kenyan Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), working in Kenya to improve the livelihoods of people with life skills education, socio-economic empowerment and provide sexual reproductive health and rights services in National development.
