The University of Nairobi in collaboration with UNESCO is in the process of implementing the Our Rights, Our Lives, Our Future (O3 Plus) project. The overall goal of the 03 plus project is to ensure that young people in higher and tertiary education institutions in the Eastern and Southern Africa realize positive health, education and gender equality outcomes through sustained reductions in new HIV infections, unintended pregnancy and gender based violence.
One of the key activities of the project is the training of champions from all UoN campuses (Main, Chiromo, Kenyatta, Kenya Science, Kikuyu, Lower Kabete, Upper Kabete, Parklands, Mombasa and Kisumu Campuses). The champions will then engage comrades with activities and behaviour change messages during the 16 days of activism from November 25 to December 10, 2021.
The Office of the Dean of students is therefore requesting interested students to apply to be engaged as champions in their campuses.

- Served as a leader in a professional group, club or religious group at the University
- Evidence of ability to mobilize students
- Attach a one page write up on issues you would champion during the 16 days of activism and how

Champions will be taken through a two days training to prepare them to engage other students.
Send your application to the Dean of Students through your Faculty Assistant Dean of Students. The closing date for applications is November 5, 2021
