BENEFITING: KING DAVID QUEEN ESTHER KENYA ORPHANAGE CORP
My name is Faith Mburu and I am asking for your help to become a Pioneer For Change for the Kenyan Youth, One Food Truck at a time.
Kenya boasts a young and vibrant population. Unemployment has been running wild marginalizing as much as 40% of the population which has had a big effect on the youth. Creation of adequate employment opportunities remain one of the greatest challenges in Kenya, and the youth have been the main casualties. Millions of Kenyans especially the youth men are unemployed, underemployed or are in the swelling ranks of the working poor. It is therefore not uncommon to find young people idling on pavements or sited in groups with nothing to do. Unemployment has led to the soaring crime rates among youth in the country. Furthermore, idle youth have been used by unscrupulous politicians from time to time to cause chaos or to start gangs that terrorize people.
As a Kenyan Youth, I am distressed to see what is going and I have seen an opportunity to do something before this situation gets out of control. Our youth need to have their energies well directed by providing them with programs and experiences which encourage self-respect and sense of dignity. They deserve an opportunity to enhance personal and social skills which are necessary for functioning in a rapidly transforming society and provide for professional skills. A FOOD TRUCK BUSINESS is the avenue I have decided to use as a pioneer for change to help our Kenyan youth. Please help me get the resources I need to address this issue, that will hopefully create more livelihood opportunities for our youth in Kenya.
……..IM READY TO CHANGE LIVES. This journey I’m about to partake is worthwhile and I am ready to be a world changer. Going out into the world to do good until there is too much good in the world. We can choose to be affected by the world or we can choose to affect the world. ”
