Core Programs

YAWE Foundation’s core programs fall within the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations. However, our programs are focused on identifying the marginalized individuals and empowering them with skills, health, and economic opportunity. This means sponsoring Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) to attend school or teaching the youth transferable skills to generate their own income. In order to be successful, our programs are designed with key stakeholders at the beginning and always have a sustainability plan established.

How We Work.

Through the help of community leaders and partner organizations, we are able to identify and assist individuals living in high risk environments. Once a relationship is established, that person can be enrolled into the different vocational activities. Also, we often identify people in need of support through our frequent health outreach programs. Additionally, we operate a safe space for the youth to come and seek appropriate services. We pride ourselves on availability as someone is always ready to respond to a need when the time comes.
