MACHE EINE SPENDE

Über uns

Die Soweto Youth Initiative ist eine eingetragene gemeinnützige Organisation. Sie wurde 1999 von Julius Odero als Pfadfinder-Bewegungsclub mit dem Namen "Soweto Club" gegründet. Wir änderten später den Namen zur "Soweto Youth Initiative", als die Organisation über die Pfadfinderbewegung hinaus wuchs. Unser Hauptziel ist es, die Gemeinschaft, die Jugend sowie behinderte Menschen zu fördern und zu stärken, damit alle durch soziale, körperliche und geistige Entwicklung zu verantwortungsbewussten Bürgern werden können.

Mercy Muraga

Koordinatorin von "Interact with Me" & Verteilung von Damenbinden

My name is Mercy Muraga and I am 20 years old. I am the third born in a family of four and I grew up with both my mum and dad. My mother is a meat vendor while my dad is a casual laborer. Through these jobs, they used to provide for us food and ensured we were educated at least until we completed high school. Survival was really tough but we can't complain, they did their best.
As of now, I have completed my high school studies and I'm waiting to join University but as I wait, I do service in my community through Soweto Youth Initiative and part-time do casual jobs.
What motivates me to volunteer in SYI is to make sure girls like me get the opportunity to go to school and later graduate from University! I really like the vision the organization has for them. We help them in their day to day challenges and make sure they feel comfortable when going to school.
