Welcome to Rural Teenagers Support Programme online.
RTSP brings together people who are passionate about supporting Teenagers to be prepared for a vibrant future as Youth and Adults. We particularly focus on teenagers made vulnerable by the challenges of poverty in rural areas of Kenya. Our programs provide Neema Hygiene Kits and Life Skills Education.
Special mention and gratitude goes to Russ & Cordy Beckstead (Washington USA), The Austrian Embassy Nairobi & St. James Anglican Church (USA),for supporting RTSP to develop the Teens Empowerment Program that is benefiting many teenagers in Kenya today.
Neema hygiene kits that ensure school going teenagers have a conducive uninterrupted learning environment. Girls get kits that promote good personal hygiene and contain Neema Reusable Cloth Pads that ensure a sustainable, hygienic and cost effective menstrual management. Boys get kits that promote good personal hygiene a basis for personal development. A good learning environment leads to good all round school performance.
Our Life Skills Education is informed by the fact that the teenage life stage is challenging if not well managed, it is characterized by physical bodily changes and psychological changes. The result is confusion on the part of teens not knowing how to handle the fast-paced changes they are undergoing making them vulnerable to negative influence. On the other hand many parents do not know how to handle and guide their teenage children in this life stage, we therefore educate parents be able to support their teens effectively.
The teenage life stage is key in molding the character of the future youth and adult, an empowered teenager grows into a responsible and dependable adult, yielding progressive communities.
We welcome you to experience the infectious JOY of empowered teenagers.
