Implementing A LOT-Change Intervention through Radio in Korogocho and Viwandani

ALOT Change Phase III is a follow-up study of the Phase II cohort who transitioned to secondary school in 2019. In this Phase, APHRC in liaison with Miss Koch and U-Tena is testing the feasibility of
implementing the A LOT-Change model among older adolescents and also establish the sustainability of the effects of the intervention as observed in Phase II on the adolescents in secondary school.

The intervention components in Phase III include career awareness training, mentoring in soft skills, holiday homework support, digital literacy and parental counselling. In the short-term, these components are expected to broaden the enrolled adolescents’ view of prospective future career paths in different sectors and knowledge of what it takes to get there; improve their social responsibility and citizenship skills; improve soft skills knowledge among adolescent boys and girls; improve learning outcomes; enhance their knowledge and skills in the use of digital hardware and related software; and increase parental support for their children’s education. In the long term we hope that by securing the future of these adolescent boys and girls, they will, in turn, transform their communities positively.
