Fountain Youth Initiative is a non-profit organization that works in the slums of Nairobi and rural areas on the western part of Kenya, since 2009. The organization is run and managed by local people with the support of international volunteers. The Organization was established as a way to nurture, empower and transform orphans, vulnerable children and marginalized youths into self reliant, independent and key players in their community.

To address challenges facing orphans, vulnerable children and marginalized youths, we are implementing 3 programs namely Nurturing, Entrepreneurship and Mtaa yangu “My Community”.

Fountain Youth Initiative is the winner of DIAR Awards 2019 (National Diversity and Inclusion Awards) as Best Collaborative Approach for Community Organizations.
