Fountain Youth Initiative | Volunteer in Kenya

Fountain Youth Initiative is a registered community based organization in Kenya, which operates in the informal settlements of Nairobi and rural areas of Busia County. We are skilled locals with a mission to assist orphans and marginalized youths, helping them to access and excel in education.


Description

We also assist young adults to acquire vocational & life skills, allowing them to start their own businesses and address social challenges in their community.

To achieve the organization’s goals, we have implemented 3 ongoing programs: Nurturing, Entrepreneurship and Mtaa yangu “My Community”. We are grateful to our partners and international volunteers for supporting us in implementing the various projects that have positively impacted the lives of the local youths and community.
