Vision

To contribute to building a positive and healthy society by transforming and empowering Kenyan youth.

Who We Are .

Good Kenyan Foundation is a non profit organisation that mentors, empowers and equips high school graduates, grouped into cohorts through a four month program that cultivates marketable job skills and career development plans as a launching pad into an actionable self driven future. Established in 2017, Good Kenyan seeks to fill the time- gap that occurs between completion of high school and the commencement of tertiary or vocational education.
Our Curriculum is designed to economically empower high school graduates from underprivileged backgrounds by making hand-made products using recycled materials that are sold through various individual corporate markets.

This paired approach invests in youth with both immediate and long-term impact on income earning potential. By working through solutions to livelihood challenges today and in the years to come. Our model encourages youth to remain positive and healthy members of the society by virtue of this unique approach for self – development.
