Waano helps local communities by training youth, women, teachers, and farmers as well as supporting private education and health institutions. We committed to help some of the world poorest communities in East Africa with the necessary resources for life and wellbeing. We dedicated to provide a welcoming and nurturing environment that empowers young people to reach their full potential.
Waano believe access to reasonable and quality education because we believe education is a basic human right that determines individual and community well-being. We value self-determination because we believe in the capacity of individuals and communities to envision and realize their strength, power, and well-being. We believe building a healthy youth community culture that acts out of love, respect, and equality for all people because we believe strong individuals and strong relationships build strong communities.
We believe that all young people have the capacity to develop personal responsibility, tolerance, and respect for self and others, thereby increasing the likelihood they will make positive life choices.
