The report below has been created by George Adede who, together with his sister founded WaMiel Foundation and facilitated the Deep Sea Slum YES Challenge in Nairobi…
A total of 10 youth groups participated. The age of the youth was between 12 and 16. The total number of youth that participated was 30. Each group received a total of Ksh. 1000 as trust based investment.
Outcome of the YES Challenge
The biggest achievement of the youth in the eyes of the facilitator is that they were very excited to try out the YES challenge. Watching them as they worked as a team, delegating responsibilities to each other and striving to be better than the previous day, that they were not afraid to ask questions and seek help where they were stuck instead of giving up.
What was the feedback of the youth regarding their experience in the youth-led changemaking activity:
