Youth Opportunities

‘A nation without the youth is like a tree without its roots’ sang Reggae Icon Burney Wailer in reference to the youth demographic.

The youth  constitute 70% of Kenya’s population and by virtue of their numbers, skills and talents they possess, youth development should ideally be central to Government and Private Sector development plans. Sadly the opposite is true, the youth are a neglected lot and still play catch up in decision making levels especially decisions relating to economic empowerment.

PAWA as one of the premier Youth Serving Organizations  leverages the power of art to advocate for youth inclusion and participation in the quest for the development of programmes, plans and strategies for enhancing youth opportunities in education, skills and talent development, participation in governance processes and  economic empowerment.
