Accounting For The Kenyan Youth

For many years, youths had been disoriented and have been shun by some members of the society due to their bad behaviour mainly contributed to due lack of employment opportunities in the country. Thanks to the USAID yes youth can project, they have recruted many youths who are being used to sensitize others as well as mobilize them to get involved in community development work even if it is through volunteering. The organization has since made many youths in the country to be very sensitive and reasonable in their actions, Also they have realized their potential to contribute towards the counter development.
