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.

Mercy Muraga

Responsable del programa Interactúa Conmigo y Toallas Sanitarias

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.
