We work with a variety of community youth groups and organisations from the informal settlement areas, supporting their projects in the communities they reside in.
A group is likely to be considered if it is located in one of these areas:
From our experience, we believe that groups having some formalisation and order are readily able to receive support and drive swift social impact in the community. Thus, a group or organisation will be considered if:
1. It is registered in Kenya as a youth group or community-based organisation.
2. It has a legal guideline (constitution) governing it.
3. It has existing members registered under the group.
4. It holds regular meetings, with at least 3 meetings documented (minutes).
5. It exists and operates within a community in an informal settlement.
We seek to walk with groups that hold our belief of “leaving nobody behind.” Therefore, a project will be considered if:
1. It benefits the surrounding community within a 500-metre radius of the group or organisation.
2. The group members own the project.
3. The group members work the project themselves on a frequent basis.
4. The project earns them an income or has the potential to do so.
