How You can Get Involved with Us
The realization that it might not be possible to face life challenges alone led to the formation of this initiative. This is in line with the vision of the members of the organization to live a life of excellence. As a result, Avep kenya is helping young people who have gone through hard situations in life to be encouraged and prove to them that they can make it in life.
There have been testimonies of success which has come about because of the help we have received from professional advisers/counselors. The CBO is building hope for many and saving lives thus preventing many senseless crimes and deaths.
In line with these activities, the CBO has gone ahead with various initiatives meant to empower the youths and help them empower others.
