The Journey Begins

Hello and welcome to Teens Kenya.

Analysts state that close to 200 million of the population in Africa is aged 15 and 24 years (Read about it: here) . Now, this makes Africa the youngest continent, but it is also worrying because of the trends of unemployment, quality of education and more so the economic growth.( Africa Youth Facts)

How then could we ensure that young people are equipped with the skills and knowledge that would help see them through life?

So, we came up with Teens Kenya: an initiative that seeks to empower teenagers in Kisumu County, aged 13 to 19 with positive life skills that would not only increase their awareness, but would also see them actively participate in developing their communities.

It has been a long journey with a lot of challenges mostly towards the launch, establishment and scale up of the initiative, but this is the year of action!
