In 2014 we built 5 water kiosks benefiting 1262 school kids and 32000 general community residents. We provided computer training and entrepreneurship mentorship to 3 youth groups (with 10 members each). In 2015 we will continue give computer training and entrepreneurship mentoring and finance at least six (6) youth’s associations to set computer based business in eastern Nairobi slums with 1 slum 100 Computers project. We will build eight (8) water kiosks with Join the Pipe project for people to drink clean water whenever possible and endeavour to set up The kahawa west community library and resource centre, a project that we fell short in 2014 raising financial need to realize despite many other organizational partners and individual material contributions.

“Joining ITF has been of great benefits to me- like getting to learn computers and participating in debate raised my self esteem and gave me confidence in myself which I never had. It also improved my communication skills which I use in my daily life. I learned business skills through which I developed a critical thinking and ventured in poultry and quail keeping. ITF has been in support of me both in finances and ideas this has made me a business man with great expectations in future.”
“ITF builds a better future of Young People by offering Job and finanacial support. So they can be independent in their business and their choice of interest. I personally support them to reduce Unemployment this way !!!!”
“At operational level it was a pleasure to work with ITF and its professional team on the 1 Slum 100 computers project. Close the Gap is proud to contribute through ITF to the development of the entrepreneurial spirit in the slums of Nairobi that will create change makers for the Kenyan community.”
