We are excited to announce the official launch of CATCH Kenya, an initiative to bring CATCH’s evidence-based physical education program to Kenyan schools.
In April 2023, CATCH and our local partners at Wellness for Greatness hosted a series of training sessions in Nairobi for close to 100 educators and education officials in order to build the capacity of local teachers to implement the evidence-based CATCH P.E. program with fidelity.
In addition to our school partners, CATCH and Wellness for Greatness have also engaged the Ministry of Education, the Kenyan Institute for Curriculum Development, Nairobi City County, KCA University, UNESCO, the Kenyan Private School Association, and many others as strategic partners in this movement.
Aligned to Kenya’s competency-based curriculum and supporting the country’s national priority on child health, CATCH Kenya will provide resources to help learners develop healthy habits related to physical activity and overall wellness in order to elevate health outcomes for the country’s 30 million youth.
Studies show that helping kids stay active has a significant impact on student academic performance, mental health, absenteeism, and behavioral issues.
