Empowering Youth: SJDP End-of-Term Activities for Young People

African Jesuit AIDS Network (AJAN) through collaboration with field centres is dedicated to fostering the holistic development of young people, providing them with opportunities for growth, learning, and community engagement. As the first came to a close, Saint Joseph Development Programmes (SJDP) undertook a series of dynamic activities aimed at enriching the lives of the youth we serve. From educational workshops to recreational outings, these end-of-term initiatives were designed to empower young individuals, equipping them with valuable skills and experiences that will shape their futures positively.”

On Saturday 23rd March, St. Joseph Secondary School YCS group had an opportunity to join other Young Catholic Student in an archdiocesan rally event which was held at St. Francis Girls Mang’u. This was the first time St. Joseph Technical Secondary School participated in such an event. Without any doubt, it was a great day of adventure, exposure, spiritually and morally nourishing.

Upendo Unit Outing and Birthday Celebrations

On the same day, Saturday 23rd March, Upendo Unit School organized a fun day activity for the children. I can assure you, there was no time for any dull moment. The greatest feeling of joy arises from our ability to make another person smile. From the smiles of these young ones, we are a testimony of how real that feeling of joy is in making one smile.

As if that was not enough, 27th March was another occasion to celebrate the lives of Upendo Unit children. As you may expect, the birthday of one child is a celebration of all the children around. Even though it was a combined birthday celebration for all the children born between January and April, it was a celebration for all.  Thanks to the well-wishers who made this event a success.
