PROGRAM

Step 1: Hope Restored - Christ & Community

Loneliness and hopelessness are real parts of life as an orphan in Naivasha. To restore hope, Inua youth experience God’s love in small group settings of 15-25 youth from the same neighborhood. These Youth Groups meet weekly under the guidance of a neighborhood mentor and Inua staff. As they begin the journey of spiritual and emotional encouragement and accountability together, they eagerly become a community of extended family to one another.

 

“I have found friends in the group I consider as brothers and sisters whom I can share my sadness, happiness and life experience with them.” – Mary, Inua Youth

Step 2: Life Skills Training

Staff members, group mentors and community partners provide training and support to the youth to help them reach their goal of a healthy, safe and financially secure household. Inua youth are taught basic life skills such as health and hygiene, communication, self esteem, organization, food security, and household budgeting.

"It is a pleasure to have someone who cares for your welfare, yet they are not related to you by blood.  So, I am really thankful for your support..."  - Kelvin, Inua Youth

Step 3: Vocational Training & Entrepreneurship

Inua helps meet basic household needs, sends siblings to school, and provides funding so that the Inua youth can gain a marketable skill that will last a lifetime. Popular career choices include hairdressing, mechanic, agribusiness, hospitality, welding, and masonry. Following vocational and entrepreneurship training, the Inua youth can receive funding to start a business of their own, with Inua staff to guide them.

"I thank God for my life and the changes He is making. In my mechanic training, I am learning many skills and am able to do some wiring."  - Mercy, Inua Youth

Inua is a transformational ministry that works to expand the opportunities for vulnerable  youth to overcome poverty, insecurity, malnutrition, and illness in order to achieve long-term sustainability…and a life filled with hope. Each participating youth is selected by village elders or community leaders based on age, location, need, orphan status, and potential for growth.  

"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11
