Youth Network Integrated Services for Research and Development (YoNISeRD) is a local Kenyan non-government organization established in the year 2015 to promote social – economic development programs targeting the youth while at the same time undertaking research aimed at creating synergies to
promote youth empowerment. It was established by 5 like-minded young people with the aim of providing space for the youth to discuss issues affecting them and initiating programs that enable them to transform and take charge of their lives as well as improving their leadership potential.
A model class youth network in advancement of social welfare, research, and provision of health and livelihood opportunities for and by the youth.
To train, promote and carry out relevant interventions that address youth and societal issues in selected counties in Kenya through environmental conservation, social-economic empowerment, prevention and mitigation of alcohol and drug abuse, peace building, promotion of art and culture, leadership and governance and human rights.
To identify, tap and optimally harness the potential of the under-privileged youth in society so as to strike a judicious balance between their quality of life as well as their meaningful contribution to nation building.
Our approach is bottom up and holistic, focusing on individual behaviour change amongst young people as well as systematic change in policy and practice towards a more supportive environment for youth led development. We deliver grassroots programmes in some of the most hard to reach and underserved areas leveraging the impact of our volunteers by creating a network of young leaders and supporting them to progress in their careers and to be champions of youth-led development. We encourage the government and other stakeholders and policymakers to engage young people in the decisions that affect them while also building the capacity of other organizations to work more effectively with and for young people. We produce research toolkits, guidance and generate evidence to share our experience with the global youth sector to ensure we are serving youth in the most coordinated and impactful way.
