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.

Program coordinator

My name is George Owiso and I am 38 years old. I am the founder of Soweto Youth initiative. I saw the suffering of the children and their mothers. Many of the children stay hungry and lack the money to go to school. I started the organization as a scout movement and later changed it into a community-based organization. What motivates me is to see how the children are happy to get a safe place to play and have fun.
