Who We Are

  • The Presidency, through the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MOEST), initiated a one year National Volunteering Programme dabbed G-United. Officially launched at State House Nairobi by H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto on Thursday 18th September 2014, the programme aims to:
    1. Promote national cohesion; by volunteering in areas other than their home or residence counties, university graduates will gain invaluable exposure to diverse environments and communities. Whilst on placement with partner primary schools, these volunteers will live with resident host families, further increasing opportunities for meaningful cultural exchange.
    2. Strengthen and support primary education outcomes; educational outcomes such as early reading and math skills will be enhanced, with volunteers under the guidance of teachers, providing remedial support to pupils that have been identified as requiring extra support.
    As mentors, volunteers will be challenged to inspire, motivate and cultivate a culture of greatness at their partner primary schools. The volunteers acting as education ambassadors will promote school enrollment through outreach and awareness raising campaigns in their host communities.
    As part of the G-United programme, Project Firefly was born. This an initiative to mentor school-going age children into successful, responsible and patriotic members of society. The initiative is geared towards improving child-welfare using a holistic approach, where children will be provided with a platform to interact with role models and learn from them. The programme will also teach the children leadership & life skills and run an academic motivation programme founded on a performance-based reward system.
