About us

Ghetto Foundation (GF) is a community-led organisation with over 20 years of experience of working with vulnerable youth in Nairobi settlements in numerous successful poverty alleviation and sustainable livelihood programs and with crime and violence prevention. We take each youth not only as an individual but also as part of (multiple) communities and as such we work holistically with youth and their communities to embed initiatives in local economic and social structures to ensure community support, which is crucial for any project with vulnerable youth to survive and thrive in the long-run.

 

We also work on urban youth issues (especially regarding economic justice, poverty alleviation, youth employment, police violence and governance) with NGOs, local authorities and national government agencies to improve programming, the policy environment and institutional reform (such as on police reform). We are one of the founding organisations of the social justice movement on police reform and economic justice in Kenya, which now has 28 organisations throughout Kenya.
