Psychologist Evelyn Ogendo launches school mentorship program in Kisii County

01, Oct 2014

Students and pupils of Kenyan schools are not exposed to sexuality education by trusted mentor despite the fact that these are the groups that need it the most. According to psychologist Evelyn Ogendo, this inadequacy in this education system leads to students being confused about sexuality and gender. Ogendo said that 2 years’ worth of statistics done by Rudi Usome program in 5 counties that included Kisii, Machakos, Nyamira, Nairobi and Kiambu indicated that 65 percent of children in families experiencing domestic violence and lack of constant mentorship are more likely than other children to exhibit aggressive and antisocial behavior or to be depressed and anxious.
