Citywise Kenya Project
Updated: Nov 8, 2018
Citywise provides educational support, youth activities and leadership training to young people in West Tallaght. Over 500 people regularly attend the Citywise centre in Jobstown where they are encouraged to develop their talents, whether these be academic, sporting, music or other. We encourage everyone to do their best.
Citywise takes pride in its wide variety of clubs, including a thriving leadership programme where young people give back in their community. For others, Citywise is an education centre which helps them to get to college (Fast Track Academy), yet for others who are interested in technology, we offer a whole range of STEM programmes – for example: Lego Robotics, Inventors club, Coderdojo, Computer Science for Girls, Digital media & Film Making.
We are not state supported, so to a large extent we depend on ordinary people like you to keep our doors open.
This year as part of our leadership programme there are a group of six young leaders (aged 16-18) teaming up with a group of student volunteers from Poland before heading to Bamba, Kenya, for 3 weeks in July to help build some much needed classrooms in a developing school. Bamba is situated 80 kilometres north west of Mombasa in some of the worst slums in Kenya.
Any support you can give towards this project is very much appreciated. You can donate in person at Citywise or on our GoFundMe page, found at this link:
