CDI has been spreading awareness by speaking with individuals in community spaces, like markets and village centers. CDI team members wear masks and hand out visual signage to share the message for hand washing and social distance. CDI is looking to increase their efforts by providing masks and hand soap to hand to members of the community as they campaign about the pandemic.
CDI believes that an empowered youth can create a huge impact in the community. Therefore, CDI advocates for the rights of young people aged 15 to 35 years through capacity building and creating awareness.
