KYEEIWorking with Africa Nazarene University and U.S. Agency for International Development, Servant Forge supports this national initiative to empower the expanding number of unemployed youth in Kenya.

Meaningful work and a secure home are what dreams are made of in Kenya. With over half a million youths graduating high school each year and a job market that can accommodate only a small fraction of them, many young people can fall victim to petty crime, violence, and substance abuse.

Servant Forge helps local leaders facilitate, mediate, and broker partnerships that will ignite job readiness, creation, and sustainability. Partners from the business, government, education, and the faith communities have united to address these serious conditions and alter the trajectory of Kenya’s future toward prosperity.

Take Action: 

There are many projects under the KYEEI including the empwerMEnetwork, a business-to-student mentoring project as well as Trees for Life, a youth-led effort to rebuild the Mau Forest after years of deforestation and destruction.
