Jeunesse Kids 2020 global initiative – our Vision for a brighter future
Our Jeunesse Kids partnership with WE Charity has presented the amazing opportunity to sponsor the building of the WE College School of Entrepreneurship in Kenya.
As a 2020 global initiative, Jeunesse Kids will work with our worldwide family of Distributors to help raise $1 million USD to fully fund this lifechanging college, which will not only impact the students who attend, but the communities they live in.
“This idea for this project began a few years ago, and we are so pleased to see it come to fruition. The WE College School of Entrepreneurship is an amazing opportunity to make a lasting impact for communities in Kenya for generations to come. The students who attend will become the entrepreneurs who make a huge positive impact in their communities. This is an incredible opportunity for the entire Jeunesse Family to leave a legacy of empowerment in Kenya.”
—Scott Lewis, Jeunesse Chief Visionary Officer
The first of its kind, this college will help lift communities out of poverty by empowering entrepreneurs to stimulate jobs, increase wages, improve local economic growth and address problems in their society.
PARTNERSHIP WITH WE CHARITY
Jeunesse Kids has worked with WE Charity to sponsor villages around the world through the WE Villages program that features, five pillars of sustainable development:
As part of the first pillar of education, WE Charity has partnered with communities to build primary and secondary schools, such as those built in the villages Jeunesse Kids has sponsored.
The impact? For the first time, children who did not have equal access to education, such as girls in Maasai Mara, were able to attend school. This has transformed communities and led to a new generation of high school graduates.
ABOUT WE COLLEGE
WE College opened in 2017 with a mission to provide these high school graduates with the skills and education they need to uplift their communities.
Volunteering and giving back to their local villages are integral parts of the WE College program, and post-graduation community involvement is a key performance indicator of success.
