An Analysis: The Implementation Of Youth Centers In Musanze, Rwanda
October 10, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Presentation by Bixby Summer Funding Award Recipient Kalee Singh
Kalee will present her analysis on the implementation of the Bixby Center’s youth center, based in the district of Musanze, Rwanda. The youth center model aims to utilize a multi-pronged approach–addressing both structural and social determinants–to improve the health and wellbeing of youth in Rwanda. The model, co- designed and managed by youth, strives to empower adolescents through the provision of comprehensive sexual education and linkages to high-quality, youth- friendly reproductive health services, livelihood skills, and general health information. The overarching goal of Kalee’s research was to develop a descriptive case study of the youth center model, documenting its effectiveness in addressing the health and wellbeing of adolescents and young adults in the Musanze district of Rwanda.
