YOUTH EMPOWERMENT

http://50.87.153.143/~kxtesiai/images/DSC06833.JPGTesia Isanga organization supports youth in the county, to help them be productive in the community and successful in their lives. Kenyan population has the highest number of youths. Many of them are graduates and are jobless. This idleness has led to deterioration of the behavior most of the youths for they engage in bad activities like alcoholism, drug abuse and prostitution. Our NGO is working hard to help these young people find employment through Income generating activities like agriculture, livestock farming, poultry keeping, recognizing talents,basket weaving and beekeeping.Participation of Young people in the developmental agenda and their leadership role in grassroots community matters Though young people are in the majority their mpact in positively influencing grassroots and national developmental agenda is limited. Various factors contribute to this situation including lack of capacity in understanding development and its interventions, cultural and social inhibitions which does respects older opinions more than younger opinions, lack of young people in leadership positions, lack of material and financial resources that plays a key role in influencing decisions among others.

This leads to young people depending on others to develop and drive the agenda including on issues affecting them both at the grassroots as well as at the national level.

Besides building the individual and group capacities the project also aims to engage various activities such as community outreaches, festivals and exhibitions which will assist in getting the youth to take a lead in addressing developmental issues at the same time display their capacities/capabilities/potential to their communities, government agencies and other developmental stakeholders.
