Summary

Youth Initiative Development Programme has been working in the Njiru settlement scheme in Nairobi. We intend to educate hundreds of underprivileged children and their parents. We will break long-standing negative social norms, which allow children as young as 12 to get married and turn a blind eye to child labour. With quality education, every child can fulfill their potential, dream big and break the cycle of poverty. Where one is born should not dictate how far one can go.

Challenge

Njiru is one of the settlement scheme (maili saba slums) in Nairobi. Poverty, crime, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence and widespread HIV/Aids make this neighborhood a tough place to grow up in. Poor families struggle to provide education and create a dignified life for their children. Sports for Mental Well-being project targets these children at maximum risk of abuse and dropping out of school.

Solution

YIDP target to use sports to reach out to poor children, educate over 100 children by 2020. These children experience extreme hardships, but they dream big. Many graduates have broken the chains of poverty and are now educating their younger siblings and relatives. We have ambitious girls and boys in sports, who want to become pilots, social entrepreneur and rejuvenate their community. We shall break a long-standing social norms through our project. Life after sports

Long-Term Impact

By supporting the slum's most vulnerable families, this project can profoundly impact the entire community. With their children safe and fed, parents can focus on lifting themselves out of the extreme poverty that has plagued them. The organization shall organize training and investment into small businesses to facilitate lasting change. Finally shown the love and support they deserve, the children will gain the confidence to become responsible, compassionate assets to their community.
