White Orange Youth, Moshi, Tanzania

Founded by John Kessy in Moshi, Tanzania, White Orange Youth (WOY) envisions a Kilimanjaro Region where every young person is able to live a full and healthy life. It works towards realizing this vision by empowering youth to be self-reliant change agents through peer to peer education: WOY runs a weekly youth club, a ‘Free to Dream’ program to support girls and young women in embracing their leadership potential and establishing businesses, and organizes innovative community outreach events to engage youth and adults alike in important conversations around health and social issues.
