Yo! The YOUTHS HAVE SPOKEN. Around the world people are demanding change. Up With Hope fully has it’s ear to the ground. One of the centres built by Up With Hope is undergoing construction in Mathare. The Pequininos Youth Resource Centre is currently being reconstructed by the CDF (Constituency Development Fund) of Starehe thanks to the Glorious MP Hon. Bishop Wanjiru. Also much praise to our amazing friends in London, the architects Katherine Hegab and Simon Tonks. The centres are used by the communities and organizations for outreach, dance groups, doing homework and most importantly, a place where idol youth can come to be a part of the community.
Building these things is the funnest thing ever. Wish we had some volunteers to come get dirty. I’ll try to get some photos up soon, but the construction is time consuming. 6 days a week, chain smoking, sweaty.
It has been a lot of work to get to this point and this is just the building.
