Our organization in Kenya is dedicated to empowering women and youth through creative arts, culture, and vocational training. We believe that by equipping women and youth with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in these industries, we promote economic development, cultural exchange, and social change.
Our programs are designed to provide a holistic approach to empowerment, addressing the needs of women and youth in areas such as education, health, and socio-economic well-being. We offer a range of training and mentorship opportunities in fields such as music, dance, fashion, and design, as well as business skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing, and financial management.
Our organization is committed to creating an inclusive and supportive environment for all participants in our programs. We work closely with local communities to identify needs and opportunities, and we partner with other organizations and companies to leverage resources and expertise.
Our work is a commitment to promoting social justice and equity. We believe that women and youth have the potential to be agents of change in their communities and beyond, and we are dedicated to supporting them as they pursue their goals and aspirations.
Inpact, we have seen the transformative impact of creative arts, culture, and vocational training on the lives of women and youth in Kenya. We are proud to be part of this movement towards greater empowerment and opportunity for all, and we invite you to join us in this important work.
Nawaka Africa, is powerful and expressive . "Nawaka" means "shine light" in Swahili, and this name speaks to the core mission of our organization - to bring light and hope to the communities we serve.
In many cultures, light is a symbol of hope, knowledge, and inspiration. It is a beacon that guides us through darkness and helps us to find our way. By choosing this name, our organization is making a bold statement about our commitment to bringing positive change to the communities we serve.
We work with the Lemaku Youth and Women Association from Karen slums, a community located in the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya. This association is made up of women and young people who are dedicated to improving their socio-economic status through entrepreneurship and skills development. Through our partnership , we provide training and resources to help them create sustainable livelihoods through art and craft making. We teach them various skills such as bead making, knitting, crochet, sewing, painting, and drawing. By providing these skills, we enable them to create unique and high-quality products that can be sold both locally and internationally
