Supporting young people in Kenya to become self-reliant and live free from poverty, through technical vocational training and business skills courses, and specialised support such as counselling.

At Raising Futures Kenya we work together with vulnerable children and young people from marginalised communities, to create rewarding futures. Without these opportunities, one in five young people in Kenya live in poverty.

We provide technical vocational courses, business skills and computer training alongside mental health wellbeing support.

Through our Seed of Hope training and support programme we enable 14-25 year olds (almost 80% girls) to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to secure employment or start a small business, generating enough income to live free from poverty.

Founded in 2001, we work closely in partnership with local organisations and people in Kenya to develop projects that are owned by the community and create real, lasting, sustainable change.

Our vision is a world where all children and young people in Kenya live with dignity, hope, and the opportunity to fully participate in society.

Our mission is to create opportunities with children and young people in Kenya to break the cycle of poverty and inequality and fulfil their potential.

Seed of Hope has given me the skills and the confidence to enter the world of work and be self-reliant
