Youth Support Kenya was founded on the Voluntary community involvement and service to the poor by Jimmy Kimau Kilonzi. Though YSK was registered officially as NGO in 2009, the work of the Director began in 1997 while a first year student for Bachelors of Arts degree in Community Development at Daystar University. From rehabilitation of street boys at Kenya's Second largest Slum Mathare, Mr. Kilonzi demonstrated his Servant Leadership transforming his Volunteer engagements into what is Youth Support Kenya today. Mr. Kilonzi later gained post graduate training in Human Resource Management and International Relations and Diplomacy from the University of Nairobi.
Youth Support Kenya is privileged to work with like minded Organizations, Families and Individuals of good will to deliver her Vision. Internationally YSK is working with Promoting Africa - Germany and Hand in Hand for Kenya - Germany. PA is our main partner for Child Support program, The Skills centre and The Mobility Centre. On the other hand H-in-H is our main partner for Maisha Mazuri Children Centre and Schools.
