Students and Facilitators

Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda are among the poorest countries in Africa, ranked 152nd, 145th and 161st respectively on the 2012 UNDP Human Development Index (HDI) of 186 countries2. Despite some progress in recent years, poverty in East Africa remains widespread and the region faces pressing development challenges including limited access to quality education, and high levels of unemployment. Cultivating individual capacity to address these challenges demands the unwavering engagement of whole communities. The 25 million youths of East Africa represent an important resource for change and development in their countries and communities.
