    • YouthInvest Foundation’s life skills programme focuses on equipping adolescents and youths with accurate, age-appropriate and culturally relevant information and skills that will help them to navigate day-to-day challenges and prepare for adult life.

    • We focus on building leadership, communication, decision-making and advocacy skills amongst vulnerable young people so that they can access development schemes and services.
