Your Success Begins with Us

Poverty Reduction

Who we are: 

YOD International is a supplier of poverty reduction programs, and humanitarian intelligence on the welfare of Kenya's slum residents. Our focus is Entrepreneurship, Agriculture, Community Art, and Safe Housing.  We are committed to helping people who live in the slums, extending the reach of government and NGOs who's programs do not reach slum dwellers. We seek to increase institutional capacity. YOD has 7+ years of experience working in Nairobi's slums.

Train & Gain 

 Come to lean about business, marketing, start-up ideas, computer and smart-phone skills, production, logistics, and project management......all at a simplistic level to make economic growth work for the poorest of the poor.

Urban & Rural FARMING

Learn how to  begin farming in small spaces using vertical techniques. Train  to create a farming co-op in the slum community for Food Security.

For end users or NGO trainigs


Express for success by getting creative with recycled products. Learn how to use the trash around the slums to enhance your space and help the environment.

ART Programs

We love ART!  Come to our location, The Art Farm and explore painting and crafts. Right-brain activities spark ideas for entrepreneurship and innovation.  Watch our  documentary,"The Mukuru Art Boyz" screened at the UN Association Film Festival.


Mukuru is our favorite slum where many homes are made of corrugated tin. Fires are prevalent and jump from roof to roof. We have access to an alternative home; made of pre-fab concrete, affordable through a micro-loan.  


Feeding little minds with a positive vision for Kenya's future is paramount. Global Awareness, Role Play, Healthy Living, Ethics, Leadership, Gender Equality, and Diplomacy.

“Success is not final; failure is not fatal:

It is the courage to continue that counts.”

Let us not forget the poorest of the poor.
