About Us More about us

Kikwetu Foundation is a registered non-governmental, non-political and non-profit making organization which is dedicated to helping and addressing a variety of issues, with a particular focus on the Kenyan society although having interests in the entire African continent. The organization was established in 2012 in Kenya by a group of passionate youth who were determined to advocate for the promotion of the African
culture as a way of creating wealth for the youth and other disenfranchised members of society. The main purpose and function of this organization is to mobilize, organize and redirect the energy of the youth towards maximum participation in relation to the major important matters of economic growth, development and innovation. Kikwetu Foundation is, in essence, an initiative which celebrates and promotes
African culture by developing the skills of people within the community. The pulse of Kikwetu Foundation is in youth empowerment and community development through exciting mediums such as the arts, culture, music and fashion. With a keen focus on youth and community development, we are passionate about changing the world around us by tapping into and promoting the talents of African youth.

OUR PROGRAMS

Cultural Development

Africa has a rich cultural heritage that needs to be tapped into and enriched, particularly in this modern era where African cultural values are slowly being eroded. Kikwetu Foundation strongly believes that our African culture has the potential to be exploited for the betterment for society and through this program, is focused on ensuring that these cultural values are promoted and encouraged.

Youth Empowerment

The youth form the majority of Kenyan society yet most are disillusioned due to the pervasive lack of employment and business opportunities in the country. Through this program, Kikwetu Foundation seeks to provide opportunities and forums which will allow the youth to nurture their unique talents and capabilities all towards the achievement of their economic empowerment.

Empowerment of the Girl Child

Despite the rise of feminism and the resultant gains that were accrued, the girl child still remains as a disadvantaged segment of society, particular in rural and slum areas. FGM, early marriage, child labour, sexual abuse and low education levels are all ills that plague the girl child and Kikwetu Foundation is determined to help as many girls and young women to overcome these challenges.
