Intervention-based learning in Kenya

Mainline is asked to develop two e-learnings for The Muslim Education and Welfare Association (MEWA), based in Mombasa, Kenya. MEWA offers harm reduction services to people who use drugs. Mainline will develop two e-learnings, which will then be made available for MEWA to access online via Mainline’s Harm Reduction School.

Mental health interventions

MEWA has an impressive track record in the harm reduction field and has specialised (amongst many other topics) in offering support for women who use drugs. In recent years, the organisation is also gaining important experience with mental health interventions. A recently conducted baseline survey indicates a sharp rise in the use of the stimulant drug khat over the last few years, particularly among young people. The survey also recorded anxiety and depression related to khat use. MEWA has been working to offer a more holistic approach to mental health interventions.

Blended learning path

Mainline will assist MEWA by developing e-learnings on community-based mental health interventions and on women who use drugs. The e-learnings will follow the blended format, meaning that they will focus on knowledge and basic skills. More in depth, intervention-based learning can be added via live (online or offline) training sessions. The curricula will be offered in English and Swahili.
