Hundreds of street peer educators and other at-risk youth are left without better development endeavours, next level competencies and capacities to sustain their change objectives after serving projects and NGOs once external funding and subsidies ceased and leave bringing with them the knowledge and skills acquired through the years. These same peer educators and their peers go back to their previous conditions and return to their service providers with same needs.


Peer groups of at least 10 members will be developed into a venture and develop their: social, human, financial and physical assets that prepares them to sustainably engage in a supervised business activities in their respective communities

Long-Term Impact

YouthLEAP seeks to sustain behavior change goals and efforts among street youth, transition them to non-exploitative income generation and facilitate achievement of their life goals and aspirations. We expect to reach 100 youth groups in 3 years time
