Hvem er vi

Soweto Youth Initiative er en registreret samfundsbaseret organisation. Den blev startet i 1999 af Julius Odero som en spejderbevægelsesklub ved navn "Soweto Club". Det skiftede senere til det navn, vi kender i dag, da organisationen voksede ud over spejderbevægelsen. Dets hovedmål er at pleje og styrke samfundet, de unge såvel som handicappede, så de alle kan blive ansvarlige borgere gennem social, fysisk og åndelig udvikling.

Vasco Calixto

"Feed a Child" Coordinator & Ambassador

Hey there! My name is Vasco, I'm 19 years old and I am from Portugal. After finishing my Highschool studies, I decided I had to get out of my comfort zone and embark on a journey that would forever change my life. After working for a few months I went traveling and had the opportunity to volunteer with amazing projects around the world. One of these projects was the Soweto Youth Initiative, where I spent about 1 month. The work that is done here moved me and the hardships that the children have to endure made me vow that I would continue to help them even after I left Kenya. Because of that, we're building a team of international ambassadors that can promote SYI abroad and get them the funds that they need. I helped build and organize this website, and currently, I'm the coordinator of the "Feed a Child" Program, giving continuation to the fantastic job started by Lea. We want to be able to provide food to all the kids in Soweto daily, so they don't have to go to bed hungry every night. Currently, I'm also an Economics' Graduate student in Lisbon.
