K-YOUTH MEDIA is a non-profit making youth organization founded in 2011, whose main goal is to equip young people from the urban slums of Nairobi, both school going and non-school going with skills on media and communication for their personal and community development. Its establishment was informed by the ambitious youth who had a strong desire for media but lacked finances to pursue the same. Media and film training has been out of reach of many young people from Nairobi’s informal settlements. KYM offers an exceptional and free training for these youths with an aim of contributing to their economic and social development. To date K-Youth has trained close to fifty young people from Korogocho’s informal settlements.
