Get street smart with youth in Nairobi's slums

For one day, join a thriving not-for-profit that provides unique training and livelihood opportunities to disadvantaged youth and women in urban slums in Kenya. You’ll dive into the heart of an informal settlement, where the real Nairobi comes to life amid colourful street vendors, animals roaming the streets, and the most innovative forms of just getting by. LivelyHoods invites you to get street smart, accompanied by youth and women who have grown up in these communities and are now making a difference to them by distributing life-changing clean-energy products. We'll also show you some of the amazing visual and performing arts, and crafts that the young people trying to get by get involved in.

LivelyHoods is a non-profit social enterprise, and in joining us on this social impact experience you'll be part of the impact! And you'll also directly support the organisation's training and community outreach work.

The idea behind this organisation, is to bring people from the street, into a marketing environment and train them for employment. Thus motivating a move from a dire situation to potentially life changing opportunities. The products on sale are solar charged lights and cooking stoves...environmentally more friendly, financially more economical and healthier than those currently used in the slum. A great idea. However, given that the majority of the slum residents could not afford food, water, education, clothing, medical aid or even have homes; I felt approaching these families and businesses was slightly unrealistic. Although, many had indeed purchased, it made me feel uncomfortable. All that said, I can not praise the teams effort in trying to make a positive change. I witnessed this change by meeting people who had started training and who spoke about their aims and aspirations, as a result. I took my 7 year old. This was a challenging educational lesson for all, including my child. It has changed her character, for the better. However, in the heat and dust she began to suffer the walk and I had to cut the experience short after lunch. My advice... plenty of sun protection, wide brimmed hat and good walking shoes. All in all, this experience was an eye-opener. I congratulate the team, wish the trainees well in their futures.

The experience working with these clean energy solutions salespeople in low income areas of Nairobi was really illuminating and rewarding. The hosts were typically Kenyan- upbeat, friendly and full of positive energy. The world they guided me through was the same. Incredibly humble and warm-hearted people. I hope they are given the chance to share in some of the evonomic development Nairobi is experiencing.

What an amazing and transformational experience for me! Claire and her team were well organized and passionate about their work. We got first-hand experience that we definitely would not have been able to do on our own. I would highly recommend this experience if you're looking to experience transformation in slum communities without it feeling like an exploitative experience at all.

Overall a unique and highly recommendable experience with an NGO working for a very sympathetic cause. The morning kicked off with a review of yesterday’s sales and preparation for today’s work which was super insightful. The actual visit to the Kawangware provided opportunities to engage with locals, visit their homes and speak to reformed criminals. The tour guide, Alex, was both friendly and informative about life in the slum and Claire ditto about the organization and its work more generally. Thank you Livelihoods for an unforgettable morning!

A fascinating day with the team from Livelyhoods - a non-profit social enterprise that creates jobs for youth and women in Kenyan slums through sales of green products. You spend the day with the Livelyhoods agents, joining in with prep and a pep talk before hitting the streets of Kawagware. You will be expected to join in; the agents wanted to know what I made of Nairobi and how it compared to home and I was roped in for role play sessions to practice sale pitches and joined the team huddle before heading out. After tea and an extremely dense kenyan bun you head out. I spent the day with Alex, one of the trainers and a former street kid with quite a back-story. I couldn't have had a better guide. to the Kawanware neighbourhood.

This experience is something I will remember for the rest of my life. The tour provided an immersion into the slums of Nairobi and gave me a whole new empathy for the problems that are being faced. It was also inspiring to see the importance of the work being done by Livelyhoods, and the impact that they are having in improving lives. Claire and Alex were wonderful guides and gave important context to what we saw. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would do it. This was an amazing experience.
