We just began a new partnership in Kenya and 11 youth participated in our Youth Innovation Lab. Out of the 11 ideas we selected a girls' empowerment program, a Kibera clean-up program, and a library program.
The storyboards for some of the ideas are below.

"According to my observations, men and boys are seen to be more superior than girls in almost every field. Most commonly in culture, education and also in careers and jobs."
44% male justification of wife beating
"Here in Kibera there is no good health, there is waste which passes everywhere that causes various diseases which even lead to death."
