Empowering Youth through Transformational Leadership

| Catholic Relief Services

Elgeyo Marakwet County Youth Bunge Forum (EMYBF) is a Community Based Organization in Kenya established in 2011 following the post-election violence of 2007/2008. With funding from USAID, Mercy Corps started implementing the Yes Youth Can! Program with EMYBF, as a way of engaging Kenyan youth in community outreach and small business creation, empowering them socially, politically and economically, thereby transforming their lives. As a youth owned, led and managed project, the focus is an all-rounded youth; politically, socially and economically. The membership is open to all youth aged 18-35 years and is free from discrimination by gender, ethnic affiliation, race or religion.
