Summary

Join in! Help us train Kenyan educators & continue to empower youth at the same time! Building on the successful Kenyan pilot of our Transformative Citizenship Program (TCP), we will now train 10 educators to lead this program. 200 more students will also be served in 2016. TCP teaches the skill sets required for economic & social resilience. It includes:1) course study, 2) work placement (e.g. farming) and 3) mentored implementation of one's own development project. Support Kenyan resilience!

Challenge

Economic and social resilience require two things: food security & secure social relationships. For those battling chronic poverty and crisis, these two essentials seem unachievable. Additionally, youth who are not constructively empowered and have become understandably bitter or hopeless are more easily radicalized. With support and practical education, resilience is achievable. Food security and secure social relationships are possible and sustainable. They can do this! We can help!

Solution

TCP is a results-oriented tool in empowering youth to achieve economic & social resilience. Training Kenyan educators in this program will make it a truly Kenyan-owned curriculum. Educators, themselves, will be more empowered by their training in the program; as they teach it. Since TCP 1)teaches essential entrepreneurship/life/civic engagement skills, 2)applies those skills in real world settings, and 3)mentors real work projects for all students; the learning is lasting and productive.

Long-Term Impact

Economic & social resilience in Kenya is the vision. The Transformative Citizenship Program is already having a positive impact on Kenyan youth. By training Kenyan educators, we will begin to maximize that impact. Upon successful completion of training the first 10 Kenyan educators and expanding the program delivery in 2016, the Transformative Citizenship Program can be included in Kenya's National Education Plan and become a standardized school curriculum for the good of all Kenyan youth.
