Two years on from receiving their first SAF grant, TRACE is continuing their unique and impactful work in Gilgil, Kenya.
We were lucky enough to see TRACE in action this year when we visited project leader Kevin Mureithi in Gilgil, Kenya, this July.
Not only is their project, Marching Away from HIV and AIDS, successfully targeting military personnel with HIV-prevention messaging, but they are receiving recognition for their hard work from the wider community.
“The MTV SAF grant has enabled TRACE to do HIV/AIDS interventions in the National Youth Service. This institution has been neglected by many NGO interventions in the past. As the project leader, this has earned me and the organisation respect. This has personally enabled me to have confidence to reach out to more youths in the camp to help stop new HIV infections. I am now invited to their meetings to provide my input, and this shows their trust in me as a result of our project,’ said Kevin.
