ABOUT US

We are a nonprofit organization in Kenya with fully local staff living and working within their own communities. 

Our belief in the empowerment of youth through education is put into practice in 275 schools across rural Kenya since 2007. 

Through scholarships, programs and community based support, youth are taught educational and life skills. 

Within the classroom, teachers are trained in digital literacy. As teachers learn to use technology to teach new ideas, their students get excited and motivated. This makes for a fun and engaging learning environment.

Beyond the classroom curriculum, local staff, youth mentors and business entrepreneurs are part of a larger community that supports the youth in building self confidence, learning financial literacy, leadership skills, job readiness and more. 

WE HAVE IMPACTED OVER

394,500 Lives in Kenya since 2007
