Even the heavy rainfall could not stop the laini saba & mashimoni youths from getting together on 18th Sunday october 2015 for the first-ever Mashi/Laini youth regional meeting. Ten youth groups each with 3 DEDICATED representatives convened first thing on Sunday morning at the GYFF office ready to speak in one voice and to establish one umbrella SACCO that facilitate effective mainstreaming of t youth priorities in the area.
GYFF consulted more than ten youth groups in the area, arranged and invited all the groups to the meeting which brought together the youths to exchange ideas, experiences and suggestions on activation of MATATU services that will create employment for the youths in kibera, Mashimoni and laini saba in particular. And that besides promoting peace, the newly constructed road can change the face of youth development hence reducing things like unemployment, hunger, violence and drug abuse among them.
The groups that were fully represented include:
- MASHIMONI YOUTH
- THE JUNCTION YOUTH GROUP
- VOICE OF AFRICA
- MASHIMONI CIRCLE SACCO
- LAINI SABA YOUTH
This first meeting was facilitated by Ghetto Youth Focus Foundation ( GYFF).
