COVID-19 RESPONSE

We’re harnessing our SMS, USSD and social media channels to ensure we stay in 24/7 contact with our network of 7.5m young people. Check out our weekly GroundTruth briefs for an insight into how the lives of young people in East Africa are being impacted by COVID-19.

WE BREAK DOWN BARRIERS SO YOUNG PEOPLE CAN TAKE CONTROL OF THE FUTURE.

By 2030, the number of people under the age of 30 living in Africa will exceed 1 billion and represent 65% of the continent’s population. We know this generation of young people can transform our global society for the better.

But right now, there’s a lot standing in their way; from disempowering internal narratives to restrictive social norms, to an economic system that excludes them altogether.

We are Shujaaz Inc. We break down barriers so that young people can take control of the future.

OUR VENTURES INSPIRE ENTERTAIN AND MOBILISE 7.5 MILLION YOUNG PEOPLE.

OUR VENTURES INSPIRE ENTERTAIN AND MOBILISE 7.5 MILLION YOUNG PEOPLE.

We are a network of social ventures based in Nairobi, Kenya. Our ventures connect young people with the information, skills and resources they need to take control; embedding them in a digital and real-world community that gives them the self-belief to succeed, in their context and on their terms.

We’ve proven that when young people take control of their lives, they create transformational change.
