About us

Soweto Youth Initiative is a registered community-based organization. It was started in 1999 by Julius Odero as a scout movement club by the name of "Soweto Club". It later changed to the name we know today as the organization grew beyond the scout movement. Its main aim is to nurture and empower the community, the youth, as well as disabled people so that they all can become responsible citizens through social, physical and spiritual development.

Our Team

We have a dedicated team of local volunteers that make everything happen on the ground. They are the heart of all the work that is carried out by the organization in the slum. They cooperate with the mutual goal in order to help the struggling community of Soweto.

We are creating a team of ambassadors from different countries that can carry out the mission of Soweto Youth Initiative across the globe! Most of our ambassadors are former volunteers and their aim is to promote our organization outside of Kenya, as well as to develop and manage new projects and parternships.
