Sobre nosotros

Soweto Youth Initiative es una organización comunitaria registrada. Fundada en 1999 por Julius Odero como un club scout llamado "Soweto Club". Más tarde, a medida que la organización creció más allá del movimiento scout, cambió de nombre hasta llegar al que presenta actualmente. Su objetivo principal es nutrir y empoderar a la comunidad, a los jóvenes y a las personas discapacitadas para que todos puedan convertirse en ciudadanos responsables a través del desarrollo social, físico y espiritual.

Joshua Wambua


My name is Joshua Wambua. I grew up in Soweto as a young boy with my siblings. I was raised by my mother who used to hawk and doing small businesses like selling charcoal and second-hand clothes and vegetables alternatively. Life was really challenging, lack of school fees, going hungry and even opted to go to the streets. I am currently working as a casual in a local school and living with my younger brother. I was motivated to get back and motivate the young ones at SYI and encourage them that life will be better someday. They only need to work hard. I want to leave this place better than I found it. I want children and youths to lead better lives. I want to see change. It must start with me.
