Young Dream Africa
YDA is a Kenyan organisation that was founded in 2007 by Lincolin Wamanya. YDA’s dream is to empower and influence young people and support them in the growth of their personality and spirituality. And to facilitate opportunities for both people and organisations to reach their empowerment goals.
For years, a team of volunteers has worked in churches to raise awareness for young people on self-leadership and ambassadorship. The team challenged them to step out of their comfort zone and help others grow. With the young people they did projects, like handing out hygiene products, giving out food to the homeless, and organize game days in the streets.
For Maryosa, YDA is their main partner, facilitating all the Kenyan projects on the ground. YDA ensures the money distribution to the beneficiaries and projects, mentors Maryosa’s beneficiaries and gives them opportunities to give back to the community by volunteering places.
Besides that, YDA uses its network to recruit new partnerships in Kenya and to spot potential talented young people. Furthermore, YDA works together with other Kenyan organisations to maintain the Maryosa projects (for instance the financial capability program).
Kingdom IT is a Dutch Christian non-profit organisation that focusses on spreading the gospel of Christ, through IT.
In 2017, they partnered with Maryosa on a conference in Kenya. They also host the Maryosa website.
