Youth Initiatives Kenya (YIKE) is a non-profit organization established in 2003 that empowers marginalized and disenfranchised youth, women, and children in Kenya. We focus on equipping youth groups with the skills, resources, and mentorship they need to thrive. Our programs address social, economic, health, and educational challenges faced by these communities.

YIKE's programs target a range of beneficiaries: Youth groups: We work with youth groups in Nairobi's slums and other urban informal settlements, as well as rural areas. Young entrepreneurs: We offer training and support to young people who want to start or expand their businesses. Women and girls: We have programs that address gender inequality, promote women's rights, and empower girls through education and economic opportunities. Out-of-school youth: We provide access to education and skills training for youth who haven't completed their formal education.

There are many variations of passages the majority have suffered alteration in some fo injected humour, or randomised words believable.
