Activities & Shift

Winners Self Help Group is a registered community based organization in Kenya, which operates in the informal settlements of Thika, Weteithie and rural areas of Kiambu County. We are skilled locals with a mission to support marginalized youths, women and people living with HIV/AIDS helping them to access and excel in education and business. We also assist young adults to acquire vocational & life skills, allowing them to start their own businesses and address social challenges in their community.
To achieve the group's goals and mission, we have implemented 4 ongoing programs: Nurturing, Entrepreneurship, Motivation and Talent recognition. We are grateful to our local leaders and community for supporting us in implementing the various projects that have positively impacted the lives of the local youths and community.
