Youth Empowerment Program

The influx of the youths is at a high rate that has led to a high level of unemployment in the country and mostly in the slums.this has made life difficult for the slum dwellers since many youths get involved in drugs and crime so as to console themselves thus omitting current affair that affect their development at large . Due to this the kenya national human rights commission launched a program in the slum of kibera so as to educate the youth on proper governance and empower them on how to be entrepreneurs in the country thus promoting self employment.
