We Are Passionate About Teens and Youth
We care about teens and youth. Hence, we established this platform to bridge the gap between academic and parental engagement by providing adolescents and youths with essential life skills.
We work with teens and youth in Kenya to promote community engagement, provide essential life skills to empower them in building social cohesion, nurture decision-making skills, and equip them with knowledge prerequisite for life out of school. We focus on safety, wellness, financial literacy, legal knowledge with respect to labor, intellectual property laws, and sexual and reproductive health. Below are descriptions of our main programs.
Teen Wellness Program
Watoto (Children) wellness was established to impact adolescent teens with out-of-school life skills vital for the children’s physical, mental and social well-being. Wellness skills necessitate out-of-the-box thinking and enhance critical and decision-making capabilities.
Youth Wellness Program
Young people require a constant flow of information on matters pertaining to personal security. Having attained majority age does not negate the fact that they are young, active, and susceptible to peer pressure.
Youth Work Readiness
This program is aimed at impacting young people with legal education on matters pertaining to labor, employment, and intellectual property. Youths are susceptible to unfair employment terms, unfavorable working conditions, and theft of ideas and innovations by unscrupulous companies.
Our child and youth programs target pre and adolescents 11-17 years and young adults 18-25 years both male and female who require flexible, cost effective and measurable solutions to solve challenges and promote holistic development.
Our Life Skills programs not only benefit young people but also the community at large. By enhancing knowledge of key competencies and helping young people learn how to navigate the world around them, (in all its socio-political and economic forms) play a significant role in shaping the perspective of what teens and youths can be and how they can contribute to society.
