Kids and youngster should be enabled to stand up for their own rights and be able to search for their own way to reach their goals.
Not only solutions to the problem the child is facing now are needed, options should be open to the child after the aid has gone. KIYO therefor not only focusses on the intellectual or physical development of the child, the cultural, spiritual and social development are of equal importance. Children and youngsters should be able to take control of their lives so they won’t need to remain dependent on outside assistance or protection.
Take a look at our projects where empowerment is key.
