On 20th October 2020, the ACIP, in partnership with the Education for Life programme of the Catholic Diocese of Eldoret, launched the PACK initiative at Kijiji in Hill School area, Eldoret. The event took place at the Redeemed Gospel Church in Kijiji between 10am and midday with about 80 adolescents from Kijiji attending. Seven (7) ACIP alumni attended alongside all the five founder members of the ACIP. All Government directives for COVID prevention were strictly observed.
The key activity at the launch was listening to adolescent boys and girls from Kijiji share on their experiences through the ongoing COVID -19 season. The adolescents were divided into 4 groups by age and sex. They then discussed their experiences in the groups and reported back at plenary.
The first batch of nine (9) ‘ACIP Champions in the land of Champions’ (in short ACIP Champs) was unveiled and among them five winner winners of an ACIP ideas competition (on how best to engage Kijiji adolescents) awarded various prizes. The nine champions include the following:
