My name is Ashwinder Bhamra and I am currently a 5th Year medical student at Moi University, Eldoret.
I have been a part of this amazing initiative as a volunteer for the school programmes since the second pilot phase in 2017.
The opportunity to be able to impart useful knowledge on sexual and reproductive health to teens who are ever struggling to understand themselves is what drove me to sign up and has kept me going since. And the change we’ve been able to make, little by little, is truly remarkable and appreciable with each student we’ve worked with!
Besides RESPEKT, I also work with other student-led organisations such as the Beyond Sciences Initiative (BSI), Young Professionals for Chronic Disease Network (YPCDN), and the Medical Students for Social Responsibility (MSSR).
