Through Dr. Jeremy Penner, a faculty member in the UBC Division of International Health and a physician who practices primarily in Kenya, GHI established a partnership with a Kenyan community-based organization called Pamoja CBO. Pamoja is a grass-roots community empowerment organization, passionate about helping communities develop the skills they need to make positive changes for themselves. They work in multiple domains including HIV prevention/education, food and nutrition, sustainable livelihood programs and more. We have had the privilege of working with Pamoja to conduct projects on a variety of topics including reproductive health, mental health, and food and nutrition.
