PROBLEMS THAT WE TACKLE.
Youth unemployment remains a global challenge, it is estimated that 80 million youth are unemployed in low- and middle- income countries worldwide, and the numbers are rising. When youth are educated, healthy, employed, and civically engaged, they have the power to drive economic growth, democracy, resilience, and prosperity. However, when the needs of youth are not addressed, poverty, violence, and unrest can follow. In contexts where bad leadership and lack of skills are the contributing factors for high unemployment, good decision-making, implementation of youth policies, and workforce development are some of the practices that target these challenges, and maybe the solutions, among others such like the Kenya’s constitution chapter 4 article 55and SDGs. .

Education is the most vital key to ending extreme poverty. Free primary education is constitutionally mandated in Kenya. This may be true in the narrow sense that public schools do not charge for tuition. But the real cost of schooling for parents turns out to be quite high. These “hidden” costs include, for instance, fees for uniform, textbooks, food, sports equipment and so on. In Kenya, education is still a distant dream for millions of girls’. Poverty, family illiteracy, lack of resources and social backwardness are the major contributing factors. World radiance international is implementing various projects to overcome these factors.
World Radiance International promotes and trains the youths to play an active role in protecting and improving the environment. To change their lifestyle and how it affects the environment.
