  • Description

    Description

    My name is Eric , 25 years, Finalist Commonwealth Youth Worker Award, 2015 and Co Founder at this Foundation.

    I was born and raised in Nairobi,Kenya together with my brothers and sisters. Our Foundation is a community based organization registered with the Kenyan Government. The organization’s main purpose is to train and create opportunities for children and youth in photography, football, and performing arts and enhance their leadership skills.

    It was established to help disadvantaged children nurture their talents and make them engage in productive initiatives. The Foundation has 60 committed and passionate trainees. The Foundation trains children who are between 10 and 16 years. Personally I can host people from different parts of the world since I have quite a spacious house.

    Mathare Foundation is a community based organization tat was registered in 2013. We provide educational programs and mentorship for disadvantaged youth in the Mathare slums of Nairobi, Kenya. We offer hands-on training and technical workshops in photography,film production, performing arts (music and dance), sports, and stay in school programs, young boys and girls from Mathare. Mathare is a settlement of roughly 500,000 people where the vast majority of the population lives under the poverty index, in houses of mud and corrugated iron sheet. Mathare is the oldest slum in Nairobi and lacks basic services like sanitation, clean water, electricity, and passable roads. As in many impoverished areas, children and teens from Mathare are at incredible risk for unplanned pregnancies, involvement in drugs and alcohol, crime, prostitution, and gangs. Our programmes are critical in offering a safe respite for children ages 6- 15 years and youth of ages 17 to 25 years where they can uncover their talents and realize their potential to become young leaders in their communities and beyond.
