Youth Organized and Engaged Project (YOEP)

DSW is committed to addressing the needs of young people in Kenya through the Youth Organised and Engaged Project (YOEP). This 24-month project aims to strengthen the youth infrastructure of YECs and YCs to effectively implement and sustain SRHR programmes in Mombasa, Kwale, Kilifi, Nairobi, Migori and West Pokot counties.

The project directly benefits six YECs and 20 YCs whose members are young people aged between 15 and 24 (50% male, 50% female) from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds. The six YECs are located in six counties where DSW Kenya is already active: Kwale, Mombasa, Kilifi, Nairobi, Migori and West Pokot. The Youth Organised and Engaged Project is in line with DSW’s YESA approach and DSW Kenya’s 2023 – 2025 strategy document and focuses on motivating the target group to change behaviour and prepare the YECs and YCs for participation in further projects.
