What We Do

Elimu is an economic empowerment platform. We amplify the leaders in our community, while mobilising them to give back to our youth.


Why This Matters

Disadvantaged youth inherit entrepreneurial qualities, which can be cultivated to develop successful leaders. This requires an investment of time, skills and resources into each young person.

Impact so far

We have built a community of leaders from a variety of industries. Our investment bankers, lawyers, politicians, actors and teachers etc are all united by a single purpose: empowering our youth.

These volunteers are giving back by teaching young people the lessons that they have learned on their journeys to success.


How this will make a difference

Our mission is to diversify opportunities in education, employment and entrepreneurship.

We are building a community for young people who want to succeed in their careers and lives.

We have developed a model which can be shared with the relevant institutions and implemented as a place-based engagement strategy at Local Government level. Find out more about this model by visiting our Elimu Fellowship page.
