Wakairu’s projects

Wakairu for years has been engaging youths in different projects. Some of the projects include Vijana Amkeni in 2016 which is a Non-governmental Organisation (NGO) that empowers youth across the country. The organization was aimed at empowering the youths politically, socially and economically.
