Activity Purpose/ Summary:
To commemorate Mental Health Awareness Month with the theme “Making Mental Health and Wellbeing a Global Priority,” we organized a team bonding and wellness session with our partners Jijenge and Homeless of Kisumu. We prompted a discussion on our workspaces and how they influence our mental health and wellbeing. Through the discussion, we also addressed how working with vulnerable groups exposes us to challenging and traumatizing experiences, and the need for emotional resilience and self-care mechanisms. We ended the session with a football tournament aimed at team bonding for the three organizations, which also highlighted the importance of physical wellness.

Personnel Input:
We called in the other partners for the team bonding.

Despite the short notice and rain, it was great to have all three teams together.

Unanticipated Achievements:
The women proved invaluable at the football match, which is typically male-dominated.

Supporting Partners:
Jijenge, Homeless of Kisumu
