Kyusa works with both males and females between the ages of 15 – 25 years. The youth we work with have dropped out of school due to lack of tuition but have a desire to build substantial careers. Majority come from orphaned homes or single parent homes while others are teenage mothers seeking to make a living for themselves and their babies. Many of the youth are responsible for providing for their younger siblings and ailing parents. The youth are at risk of being abused and exploited due to low self-esteem and lack of bargaining power. We also work with youth who have been forced to drop out due to academic failure but have amazing potential that can be turned into sources of livelihood.
