Safari ya Mafanikio (Journey of Success) Resource Kit

These tools guide group discussions and other interactive activities in communities, providing opportunities for interpersonal communication and community dialogue.The Safari ya Mafanikio CRK’s unique and highly participatory methodology applies the principles of effective learning, engaging participants through interactive storytelling, drama, games, metaphors, personal risk assessments, and other innovative activities that inspire solution-seeking behaviors and shift mental models around deeply held cultural values. Activities do not just inform the audience what they should or should not do, but also enable a motivating connection with why they should or should not do it, in a manner effective for literate and non-literate audiences.

The kit contains twelve modules covering a range of topics identified as priorities by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare. Grounded in an introductory module in which participants create their vision for a healthy future, health modules include HIV prevention; HIV testing and counseling; voluntary medical male circumcision; HIV treatment, adherence, and support; tuberculosis; maternal, newborn, and child health; elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV; family planning; most vulnerable children; malaria prevention; and malaria treatment and prevention during pregnancy.

Rather than creating separate kits for each topic, the CRK addresses all of them together in one comprehensive and versatile resource. The attached file includes the Trainers Manual, the English and Swahili versions of the kit, and campaign messages.
