Three-Fold Increase of YETU Tier 1 Partners

In the spirit of collaboration for sustainable development, YETU is excited to welcome three more Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) into its growing family. These organizations were selected through a rigorous and competitive process that resulted in quality submissions.

Our partnership approach between local CSOs is rooted to building the capacity and fundraising efforts of the CSO in a bid to create positive outcomes in the community.

Here is a sneak peek at the new kids on the block:

Flying Doctors Society in Africa-(FDSA)

AMREF Flying Doctors is the largest and best-known international air ambulance services provider in the region. They have been in the Aeromedical transport industry for close to 60 years, acquiring a huge wealth of experience, professionalism, and solid infrastructure.

Brighter Communities Worldwide

Brighter Communities Worldwide considers the whole community, enabling individuals and communities to be authors of their own development, building brighter communities for all. Their model creates an enabling environment for communities to realise change and uses a partnership based approach to deliver relevant programs to meet the needs of communities and individuals.

Tumaini Innovation Centre.

Tumaini  seeks to improve the lives of street children in Eldoret, Kenya by empowering them with hope, knowledge, skills, opportunities, and resources necessary for them to find a healthy alternative to street life. Our Mission is to help children abandon street life entirely and move into an alternative, healthy, viable lifestyle.

A Civil Society Organisation(CSO) can join the YETU Community of Practice by writing to yetuinitiative@akfea.org
