How to Fight Against Unemployment in a Slum ?
Updated: Dec 5, 2019
Uweza is launching a new campaign in partnership with GlobalGiving Foundation to create more learning programs for 70 young men and women ages 18-25 living in the Kibera Slum to develop their skills and abilities.
With the money raised, Uweza will create new classes in business, accounting, sewing, plumbing and photography. The 501 (c)3 foundation will facilitate their access to University or vocational training. The goal is to reduce unemployment among this vulnerable age group and start them on a path toward self-sufficiency.
You can help Uweza to create a better future for them by clicking on the link below and giving as little as $10. We need to raise $5,000 by the end of December...All donations are tax-deductible.
Uweza is one of Project Kenya's partner in Kenya. Starting in 2018, we helped them launch different classes and supported their micro-loan programs by organizing a pitch competition and awarding prizes for 7 local business ideas. We also bought sewing machines and fabrics to help young mothers create items that they can sell on the market. To promote local artists and photographers, we organized Kibera Art Fest in June 2019 with the help of Uweza Gallery and different Art professionals from Nairobi. Many of these talented young artists pay for their education through the sale of their artwork.
Project Kenya is very proud to help create jobs and opportunities in Kibera.
