Who we are


JAAWABU For Communities started as a call for mentorship and guidance in Kibera slums, during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we have grown and expanded our programs in the last twelve months.

Looking back, I am proud of what JAAWABU for Communities Organization has achieved. We have managed to launch different programs and impacted 350 school girls, 30 teenage mothers, 57 schoolboys and 20 widows. We also managed to launch Manzi Wa Maana program for girls, Tabasamu program for widows and Angaza program for boys. Both Manzi wa Maana and Angaza programmes are for mentorship programs and Tabasamu program for economic empowerment.

We also partnered with different organisations like Love your Neighbour Organisation, The Strength Finder Foundation, Soles for African child organisation among others. Through these partnerships, we were able to travel to counties in Kenya, like Kilifi, Narok, Pokot and Baringo to carry out our mentorship programmes and economic empowerment activities.
