The LivelyHoods Mission & Vision

Our mission is to create livelihoods for youth in urban slums. Our vision is a world in which youth have the opportunity to work their way out of poverty.

An Overview

We’re creating LIVELIHOODS and making this world more LIVELY, one neighborHOOD at a time.
LivelyHoods is a not-for-profit sales network that creates jobs for youth in Kenyan slums through the distribution of life-changing products. After interviewing 278 youth about how they survive, we learned they had to sell something before they could eat. LivelyHoods employs youth at what they are good at – sales. Our sales network leverages young people’s ambition and knowledge of their community, and requires minimal education. We prepare youth for a life of financial independence and personal success.
