About Us

‘Hands Up Kenya’ is a not-for-profit initiative that brings together a network of successful international and Kenyan entrepreneurs, business leaders and changemakers who are eager to give back to their communities by removing the barriers that prevent Kenyan youth from achieving their full potential.

Our Motivation

By 2040, 40% of the world’s working-age population will be in Africa. At the same time, according to the World Bank, Kenya’s youth unemployment rate has been over 20% since 2004.

Our Mission

Offer mentorship, training, empowerment and opportunity through our grassroots network of accomplished international entrepreneurs, leaders and changemakers.

Our Platform

A unique conference series featuring workshops, career fairs and the opportunity to join a transformative network of young professionals and dedicated mentors.
