The Plan
We want to increase condom use among youth by creating funky and innovative condom designs using the designs created by popular Kenyan artist Michael Soi. To raise money for this project we are offering five unique condoms designs to our global supporters!

The Market
In Kenya, the many youth are scared of buying condoms from public vendors because they do not want to be seen as sexually promiscuous. It is assumed that sex is for married people only, yet the majority of youth in Kenya are young couples. At the same time, the condoms available are either boring and of low quality or unaffordable to the majority of youth. This new line of condoms will be affordable, innovative and marketable.

The Impact
We need your help to attain this goal and consequently lead to reduced number of new HIV infections as well as reduced stigma associated with condoms purchase.  Our condom line coupled with a innovative marketing and distribution strategy will break down social, economic and social barriers preventing youths from accessing condoms.


How will the funds be used?

The funds generated from this will cater for the production of the first line of customized condoms for their distribution in the Kenyan market.  If we are able to successfully raise all the funds, we will expand and improve on condom line. We will also dedicate additional resources to advocate policy makers to improve condom use and access in Kenya. Additionally, we plan on distributing this condom line to youth groups who in turn will redistribute them to other youths.

Michael Soi – Sponsored artist

Michael is a Nairobi-based artist whose pieces provide a personal reflection and satirical commentary on contemporary social, economic and political trends in Kenya. Most of his work focuses on the controversial yet interesting aspects of life in Nairobi.

Risks and Challenges
We may encounter a few manageable challenges in this project. We have already identified the printers and hope the production will be done immediately our goal is met.The condoms packaging will be printed in the United States and the distribution to other parts of the globe may take longer than expected. The expected delivery date for our supporters will be July 2014.
