We are harnessing youth power for social and economic development by empowering young people to become social entrepreneurs.

To create a sustainable world where peace and justice thrive, all individuals must acquire values, relevant skill-set, and heightened awareness (UNESCO 2014). Our theory of change harnesses youth power for socio-economic development by empowering them to make income and impact. We do this by educating young leaders, empowering them to lead social change and providing a network that supports their growth.

Our youth development programs address three areas of

Focus

We bridge a significant loophole in the nation’s education system by offering mentorship and alternative educational opportunities that allow young people below the age of 20 to develop essential skills for active citizenship, leadership, and career in the 21st-century society and workspace. 

We raise young social change leaders through a 5 phase approach (DCDES) that helps them to discover their vision and needs, develop self, create solutions, engage with communities to test the solutions, and finally pass on impacts to others. 

We promote entrepreneurship by teaching on social entrepreneurship and design thinking. Our training programs supports youth entrepreneurs to develop their ideas, find product market fit, launch products and secure capital.
