KIBERA VOLUNTEERS FOUNDATION is a non- profit organization formed and run by young professionals from Kibera slum, Nairobi. The organization aims at tapping and consolidating skills and talents existing among the children and youths in the community for the common benefit of the slum dwellers. Kibera is the largest slum in the world and as a result the residents face enormous challenges especially, the school going children. Who lack positive information and mentorship programmes As young people born and raised in Kibera slums, we saw the need of coming up with a community organization to address some of the issues faced by children and the community at large. We decided to come up with Kibera Volunteers Foundation, to address some of these issues. We also felt the need to join hands as youths to offer some of our services at our disposal to a greater community. We also believe that lack of basic and proper Education is also a contributing factor that leads to poverty, K.V.F wants to be the Home an a central place to equip the youths and children that have been neglected by the priority.
