GENESIS JOY INTERNATIONAL
Genesis has a vision of being the best provider Complementary Education (CE) and continuing Education in Africa. To this end, we provide complementary education to out of schoolchildren and youth in the urban slums, in Africa, to enable them to effectively participate in Africa’s sustainable development.
70% of the Nairobi’s population lives in slums. By 2050, nearly 90% of the world’s urban population will live in slums. The urgency of this matter through a transformative approach is vital!
We are therefore seeking to holistically empower and equip the humanity by developing the local community through Education, Evangelism and Economic empowerment as a result positively impact the lives of the populace in the urban slums in Africa who will subsequently advance the wider community having been empowered socio-economically hence transforming their respective communities.
Our main objective is to build the capacity of the orphaned, vulnerable children and out of school youth, to rise up to be leaders in their different spheres of influence and thereby standing as role models in the next generation.
