Empowering the Youth to care for the disadvantaged in their communities
The Kenya Orphan and Youth Network (KOYNET) is an organisation that is involving the youth to be stewards of the less fortunate in their communities- orphaned and disadvantaged children. This is done through mentorship activities and using innovative communication and teaching techniques that ultimately empower the caregivers to these children.
Our work is centering on Siaya County which borders Lake Victoria in western Kenya. It is overwhelmingly rural with most residents engaged in substinence farming and standards of living quite low.
