International Transformation Foundation (ITF) is a youth led non-profit organization providing youth educational and self-development programs encompassing leadership and entrepreneurship to harness creativity for Youth system that provide jobs; offering security, opportunities to grow, and contribute to the development of our communities. Since its establishment ITF has been developing and operating youth development programs to lead the youth of today as leaders with a strong heart and mind as true workers of society with creative and progressive thinking. Our current projects are:
1. Join the Pipe Project: Installing sustainable tap water stations near playgrounds, city centres, parks, schools and bus stations in Africa; for people to access clean tap water whenever possible.
The project also works to bring awareness to the environmental impact of production and waste of bottled water through three ventures:
- A water kiosk at school: a school based, and students managed business selling clean tap water to community residents. It involves financing a community school to set up an onsite water kiosk with specially designed and sustainable products for children to transport tap water at home straight from school. It is both an educational and profitable business – teaching students’ business and entrepreneurial skills and generating much-needed income for schools.
- Public drinking tap water station: In partnership with urban Communities/Towns/Cities we install our non-breakable drinking water station in Public places for people to access clean drinking tap water free of charge.
- The Nairobi City Water project: which encourages people to drink water using reusable bottles for cleaner, healthier and sustainable communities. The project provides local habitants and visitors with affordable, sustainable, and attractive alternative to single-use plastic water bottles: reusable bottles, in combination with indoor -and outdoor tap water refill-stations installations. The proceeds from the sales of these products to high- and middle-income communities are used to finance Clean-up and access to clean drinking water projects countrywide.
2. Jijenge Kijana Fund: a youth livelihood pathway offering microcredit, micro-saving and training which enables ITF members to engage in productive and stable livelihoods
