Our focus is on four key outcomes: for kids and young people to graduate HEALTHY, EDUCATED, EMPOWERED and EMPLOYED. Why these four? Because they’re all interconnected and essential to achieving the big goal: helping break the cycle of poverty.
Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to getting and staying healthy. So our health programmes focus on two essential things:
- Developing healthy habits; and
- Connecting kids and young people with services when they need help.
Education doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all solution. Your support is invested in helping kids and young people complete school using a wide range of tools to make it happen: providing school fees, uniforms, supplies, tutoring and scholarships.
Through empowerment programmes that build leadership, teamwork and confidence, you’re not only making a brighter future possible, but you’re also creating a positive ripple effect on kids’ and young people’s communities.

“For me, YUVA is a door to success. YUVA has had a great impact on me because it helped me grow as a leader. This programme changes lives — it changed mine. I participated in almost all the programmes here. Now, I am a volunteer, teaching the kids everything I learned.“Dayana S., 22, YUVA Academy Graduate
