KITO International is a non-profit social enterprise dedicated to getting youth off the streets and out of poverty. Inspired and founded by a former street boy, KITO combats poverty by providing economic opportunities. We are based in Nairobi and Siaya in Kenya. · KITO trains youth in entrepreneurship, financial literacy, employability skills, and life skills. After 2 months of intensive training, KITO youth are temporarily employed with KITO’s social enterprise, EcoSafi, in order to gain hands-on experience in a formal employment setting. · KITO staff and supporters also seek opportunities to link KITO youth to mentorships, internship, or apprenticeships in and around the community in order to expand the youth’s knowledge and confidence in order to set them on the path towards self-sufficiency. · KITO is dedicated to the success of each and every youth that walks through its doors and customizes each youth’s exit strategy to ensure their continued success and growth. Previous KITO graduates have continued their education, secured full-time employment, and started their own business.


WORK: The volunteers do not have to be professionals but will be guided to do manual work and other activities that positively impact on the advancement of Kito International. 103 · Training youths on life skills, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, employability, curriculum Vitae development and interviewing skills. · Mentorship and apprenticeship for the youths with emphasis on the girl child who are marginalized. · Design and production of custom-made bags from bio degradable materials, printing of T-Shirts and other related works · Participating in clean ups in the community and around the Lake Victoria · Conduct focus group discussions on gender issues · Assist the Librarian in the community library. · Submit project report to KVDA.

Water is available from springs and it is recommended that drinking water should be boiled or medicated. Mineral water available at supermarkets is also recommended. · The Government policy to install ICT in primary schools has seen connectivity to the national power grid for most educational institutions in Kenya and this makes it easy for volunteers to use electric appliances while at the project. · Furthermore, we invite you to bring typical food, spices, drinks, games and music from your country (for an intercultural evening) – and a lot of motivation!
