1. Free Cervical and Breast Cancer Screening Camps.
In Kenya, cervical cancer is the second most prevalent cancer among women and the most common among women aged 15 to 44. In 2018, there were an estimated 5250 cervical cancer cases and 3286 deaths in Kenya, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer Global Incidence, Mortality, and Prevalence. This makes cervical cancer the leading cause of death among Kenyan women, and the situation is significantly worse in rural areas with inadequate access to healthcare.
Up to 3.7 million lives could be saved each year through resource appropriate strategies for prevention, early detection and timely and quality treatment. Yet, at least one third of cancers can be prevented. This is part of the justification to improve the face of health in our society by creating cancer awareness and early detection through screening and healthy lifestyles modifications towards a cancer free society.

3. Reproductive Health Education
Teenage pregnancy is a global concern which is affecting various parts of the globe, according to UN 21 million girls aged 15-19 years in developing regions of the world become pregnant and approximately 12 million of them give birth. Also at least 777,000 births occur to adolescent girls younger than 15 years in developing countries. Reports from UN also confirm that adolescent pregnancies are a global problem which is occurring in high-middle and low- income countries around the world however adolescent pregnancies are more likely to occur in marginalized communities with the most common drivers being poverty, lack of education and employment opportunities.
Naledi Initiative created inclusive school-based reproductive health education programs in collaboration with specific schools and communities to empower both girl and boy child.
