Bem-vindos novamente!

Hey, we are Soweto Youth Initiative (SYI), from a Kahawa West Slum in Nairobi, Kenya. This slum faces real poverty, most of the kids can’t go to school, battle for a meal and end up having kids really young and aren’t capable to provide for them. It’s a vicious cycle. We started our job some time ago as a scout movement (1999), and used to train the youth in some basic skills. Now we’ve changed, but our mission is the same: to give a better life to the ones in need. Lack of water, hunger, extreme poverty, drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, school drop-outs, and many other huge problems are actual reality, so we have many programs and activities in order to solve this. Now, we aim bigger. Alongside with some volunteers, we made a new website and it’s out now with many new features. You’ll be able to read interviews with the members and volunteers, news about the slum and the association and much more. Do you want to help us in our mission? Know more about us? Visit us? Get to know our programs such as "Alimenta uma Criança" e "Apadrinhamento Escolar"?
