Eneza Learning Something New Everyday!

In today’s Eneza Club, we learned about the signs of post-traumatic stress that result from sexual violence, poverty, and other traumatic experiences. One of the girls shared how she will use the knowledge she had learned to help her brother who was suicidal because he didn’t have school fees. She realized that his suicidal thoughts shouldn’t be ignored but it requires a professional counselor to intervene. We shared information about partners in Kibera that could help him.

She now understands her role in helping the rest of the family understand her brother’s need for psychological support. It’s interesting to think that our Eneza Clubs are not only preventing sexual violence, but they’re also preventing young people from taking their lives.
