Challenge

Impact Youth through the Impact Lab program has been providing mentorship and academic support for the middle school and secondary level youth in the village of Ayenya. As our program evolves and continues to impact the youth in the village we realize that a majority of students especially the girls struggle to continue their education past the middle school level because of the expense related to attending secondary school outside the village.

Solution

Impact Lab Educational Center will make secondary vocational and technical education easily accessible and affordable thus reducing illiteracy down to zero in the village and challenge the youth to become problem solvers and leaders in the community with the aim to produce individuals who will bring transformation to the community.

Long-Term Impact

The Impact Lab Educational Center aims to use sports as an enabler to nurture and develop forward-thinking young leaders irrespective of their background or gender. We believe that all youth irrespective of background or gender when mentored, motivated, and provided with adequate resources and opportunities are better able to improve their skills and character, becoming valuable contributors in their community.
