Peer Support Session
Young Fathers beneficiaries held their peer support group session on 23rd May 2021, at Mathare North social hall. The key objective of peer support is to openly discuss some of the challenges they undergo in meeting their daily family needs in terms of social-economic needs. The discussion is structured in a manner that motivates the young fathers through experiences shared by their colleagues.
The young Fathers shared some of the challenges they have faced during the second lockdown as a result of the 3rd wave upsurge of the novel COVID 19. Most of the participants highlighted reduced household incomes as the major challenge. The reduced income trickled down to other social issues including; disagreements within the families, difficulty in paying bills including house rents, emotional challenges etc.
