The Yayaz Project

The Yayaz Project is a leadership program for girls in western Kenya.  Our program helps strengthen their voices, build esteem, and develop their critical thinking skills, all of which will help them make informed decisions in their lives.

Our program tackles many of the challenges facing young women in Kenya today such as teenage pregnancy, high HIV transmission rates and sexual violence. The Yayaz Project works to bring about transformation in the lives in lives of young women and falls in line with one of the Millennium Development Goals set by the United Nations which is to promote gender equality and empower women by 2015.

We believe that an educated and confident woman is far more likely to make decisions that will have a positive impact in her life and the community at large.  For this reason, The Nabutilu Foundation is dedicated to helping young women globally on their individual path to success.
