PROJECTS ACROSS KIBERA

Community Health Workers

Wayo Wayo Kibra Health

Wayo Wayo Kibra Health is a division of the WWK organization that focuses on community health in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya. The focus of this program is to increase access to primary health care services, improve the sustainability and effectiveness of current community health worker (CHW) programs, and create paid positions for certified CHWs.

Community Health Workers

Community Health Workers (CHWs) are individuals who carry out functions related to health care delivery. The CHWs train in varying degrees regarding health interventions; however, they do not carry medical or health-related degrees like many health professionals. We have trained 25 CHWs who have acquired certificates of completion and have become certified by the Kenyan Ministry of Health. There are several Wayo Wayo Kibra CHWs that the local Government contracts for health facilities around the slums. The CHWs in the Kibera community will play a vital role in bridging the gap between community members and local health programs.

The CHW Program in Collaboration with WWK Soccer.

Through the WWK Soccer Program, WWK Health could potentially recruit thousands of individuals into the CHW program. Moreover, the Kenyan Government recognizes The CHW Program as participating in its national community health care strategy. This national health system has created a coalition of relationships and partnerships with organizations such as Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO), The Ministry of Health, and other local community organizations. WWK Health provides the necessary education for WWK soccer participants to create employment opportunities within the CHW program.
