About us

For 20 years Raising Futures Kenya has worked alongside local people in Kenya to develop projects which are owned by the community and create long-term, sustainable change to reduce poverty and improve livelihoods.

Through our Seed of Hope training and support programme we enable 14-25 year olds (75% girls) to secure employment or start a small business, generating enough income to live above the poverty line. We provide free technical/vocational education and business skills training, alongside mental health and wellbeing support plus practical assistance (food, hygiene products, vouchers for childcare and travel etc) which has led to over 90% of graduates being in employment, self-employment or further education.

In the UK we have 1 full-time and 1 part-time member of staff, we prefer to focus our resources in Kenya where we have a dedicated team of 21 full-time staff.
