OUR IMPACT

Lives Impacted as of 2007, and Growing...

In a year of challenge and uncertainty, we continued to grow our impact. We adapted to meet the demands of a global pandemic and remained steadfast in our mission to educate and empower the next generation of change agents.

 

Evidence-based decisions are foundational to our program implementation strategy. To create long-term sustainability, we continuously seek “ground truth” information to clarify our understanding, refine our approach and improve our decisions. We strive to collect data as close to the schools as possible through user-friendly methods.

Unleashing the Potential in East Africa

Education and life skills are of the utmost importance for the growing youth population in Africa. Youth must be prepared to succeed in career and life opportunities.

We invest in youth in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda to support their education and personal development.

We strive to educate and empower youth to obtain the skills, knowledge, and experience to prepare them for that next step.

Youth are stepping up to be decision makers and valued leaders in their communities and we are standing right along beside them.
