The majority of our team grew up in Mathare, one of the largest slums in Africa. They know better than anyone what it is like to grow up in extreme poverty and violence. Fighting for existence, for equal opportunities. We therefore work from the core with people who can best share experiences with each others .There is always a strong hope and believe for a better life in the slums. People are always looking for a path that leads to a better future for their families, communities and themselves. We are there to support. Our motto is “Teach them how to fish so they can fish forever” We are an organization which is based in The Netherlands and in Kenya. Mission Mission: To nurture, empower and transform local youths to be self reliant, independent and key players in their community. Vision: To develop a community where people actively participate in the decisions that affect their everyday lives and their future generations
