WHO ARE WE?

New Dawn Kenya was founded and registered as an NGO in August 2001. It was established in response to an assessment of traditional methods of communication and information aimed at behavior and attitude formation for pre-adolescents. Findings revealed that the information available was inadequate, leading the adolescent children to be largely misinformed about their sexuality, HIV/AIDS, and healthy relational skills. It has two major Programs that facilitate the delivery of this mandate.
