How Zana Africa Has Helped Kibera Youth

Our story is a bout an organisation called Zana Africa which has helped as a lot.This organisation plays a very important role in teaching the youths of Kibera computer lessons and also teaches them a bout life issues e.g. Having strong self worth and self esteem. The organisation has also helped the Kibera girl by providing sanitary towels and pants for them, this has helped a lot of girls who can't afford to buy the towels because they can now atleast attend school for the whole term.We then thank the Zana Africa for volunteering to help kibera youths we hope that the organisation will continue to grow and help more youths
