About us

Ubuntu Youth Organization (UYO) is a local Non-Profit refugee-led organization started by a group of refugees and Kenyans in Dagoretti south constituency as a self-help group in Nairobi Kenya. UYO started in February 2016 from the need presented by the harsh living conditions that urban refugees experience in their day-to-day living. The organization realized that many young people and single mothers’ refugees and Kenyans aging 15 to 35 years are at risk of living without skills due to a lack of financial support.

The term Ubuntu means “I am because we (you) are”, this gives us the confidence to empower others, to give them what we have, that why we say "We are empowered to empower Others."
