Family and Community Health

In order to counter limited access to health education and medical services in most pastoralist communities, Sauti Moja supports local communities with training in child health and nutrition, prevention of disease and unwanted pregnancies, care for people living with HIV/AIDS, and sexual and reproductive health and life skills education for students. 


Family health training is provided to single mothers who receive livestock loans. The 12-lesson curriculum includes reproductive health, family planning, gender-based violence, and child health and nutrition. Women become health advocates in villages which have limited access to public health information.  



Primary school girls and boys are trained in sexual and reproductive health on topics selected in consultation with students, elders and teachers: puberty and personal hygiene, prevention of pregnancy and STIs, female genital mutilation, child rights related to marriage, sexual- and gender-based violence, healthy relationships, and goal-setting plus the life skills that support success.

Local leaders conduct ‘community conversations’ to sensitize their communities to the risk of HIV, encourage HIV-testing, develop strategies to reduce risk of an epidemic, establish a peer support group for those affected by this disease, and identify those who will provide home-based care for those living with HIV/AIDS.


School girls, including deaf (photo), who have an unwanted pregnancy face incredible family and community pressures. They receive trauma counseling, support for safe delivery of their baby, family mediation to avoid forced early marriage, child care training, and on-going counsel for several years.
