For many decades, the youth in Kenya have been vulnerable to many risks. Every year, different risk factors push them to a life of crime, slowly taking them away from realizing their full potential.
A good number of them look toward crime as a possible solution to the different challenges they face every day. But a life of crime often leads to only a handful of predictable outcomes; being ostracized from society, jail sentences or in some instances, death.
It is in this light that for six months beginning April 2019, Pamoja for Transformation implemented a 6-month pilot project on social transformation in two parts of the country where youths remain at great risk of getting sucked into lives of crime. Distory was at hand to document these changes.
