Advocate, Educate, Empower.

Building awareness and self-reliance on refugee youths’ experiences.

Youth Voices Community (YVC)

We are a refugee led organization that aims in building awareness on refugee youths’ experiences while also developing their self-reliance.
Our mission is to give a voice to refugee and vulnerable local youths in Nairobi by helping them share their stories, building their capacity and engaging in advocacy.

Advocate

We tell success stories, produce short story features on refugees and local vulnerable youth and collaborate with partners such as The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to disseminate information to our persons of concern.

Educate

For three years we have worked with Xavier Project, a Non-Governmental Organization supporting Refugee Education, to provide education opportunities and support to refugees and locals.

Empower

Annually, we have an event dubbed ‘YOUTHS ON THE MOVE. We aim to appreciate youths who are positively impacting their communities by sharing their incredible stories that show their persistence and dedication in the work they perform for their communities.

Advocacy  – YOUTH VOICES

Youth Voices of Nairobi has been on the forefront to voice issues affecting refugees and local Kenyan youths using online campaigns, stories, news features and stakeholders meeting with major organizations such International Rescue Committee , Education GAP and United Nations High Commission for Refugees.

Education and Training

Access to education for all and more particularly for the refugee and local youths has been our focus since we believe an educated youth can become a hero who works in their community to solve the challenges that they experience, and through this transform themselves as well as their communities.

We have advocated for increased focus on girl’s education as they usually face additional challenges in their communities.
