25.04 | COVID-19 BAROMETER
- 27 Apr 2020
After nearly a month of COVID-19 Barometers, of SMS surveys, USSD polls and WhatsApp Focus Groups, this week’s brief is a slightly extended report, that reflects on the seismic impact of the past four weeks on young people across Kenya.
In 10 years of Shujaaz, it’s never felt more essential that their voices, experiences and concerns are heard – and responded to. The stakes are incredibly high. Today, 3 in 5 Kenyans are under the age of 25. Right now, under 25-year-olds represent more than 60% of the total population. As we evidence throughout this week’s Barometer: this generation must be at the very centre of Kenya’s response to the COVID-19 crisis.
