Video Updates from our grantee – Emerging Leaders
February 10, 2022
To break the cycle of inter-generational poverty, Emerging Leaders project in Kenya works with vulnerable, unemployed youth in urban informal settlements of the Nairobi and Naivasha regions. The program focuses first on changing mindsets to unlock youths potential. Then the program builds on this with financial literacy and entrepreneurship skills, typically seeing upwards of 70-80% of participants start a small income-generating business – one they identify, plan, and deliver and which more than doubles their monthly income.
This is an update that shows the milestones and great success achieved in just 9 months since project start.
We are also excited to share a music video that was inspired by the program, and the great work the organization does for the youth in Kenya. Enjoy!
