Stowelink is a youth initiative whose main aim is to provide good health and wellbeing with specific target on non-communicable diseases and gender based violence sensitization. Stowelink targets youth 10-24 and young girls 14-22years. Stowelink consists of medical student volunteers, NGOS partners and we are registered with the Non Communicable Diseases Alliance of Kenya representing youth voices in the fight against non communicable diseases in kenya. The project was founded after I suffered 4 annual deaths from non-communicable diseases,my girlfriend of cancer, my aunt of stroke and 2 friends from diabetes not because they could not treat these diseases but because they did not have the right information.Stowelink was formed to bridge the gap in non-communicable diseases and gender-based violence by providing easy-simple-to-understand information which is relevant to the youth.We have been able to start multi-organisational partnerships bringing onboard the government,NGOs and social enterprises like ours together for SDGS 3 and 5.We have been able to use art,poetry and photography to reach to the youths with health messages.We also developed a mobile-application,MyHeart KE which provided relevance easy-to-understand information on cardiovascular diseases and prevention of non-communicable diseases.We are currently upgrading it to MCure suite which will be a one stop shop for all non-communicable diseases and gender-based violence information and services.We have been able to reach 2.3 million people in kenya earning as the most sustainable social enterprise innovating around sustainable development goals.We have been able to crowd source funds to get 4 youths operation in India,visited 34 institutions and represented East Africa in the World Obesity Patient Summit in London.We continue to believe in one thing TRANSFORMING AND EMPOWERING LIVES.
