Our Profile

T.C.V.Y was  registered by the government of Kenya on December 17th 2010, under registration no. 13845/CBO/K/2010 as a Community Based Organization (CBO). The organization was founded after a group of unemployed youths met during inter-churches choir competition function. Together they initiated garbage collection services in the neighborhood. These services were offered at a levy which accumulated to fund the opening of a computer cyber cafe. The organization was initially formed by 23 youths, but that number has eventually increased to 177, who we focus to provide a life-changing work and it is just the beginning.
