The Children and Youth Empowerment Centre (CYEC) is a residential and educational program for former street-dwelling children and youth in Kenya. The Centre is located in Nyeri, approximately 175km north of Nairobi. The Centre is home to more than 150 children and youth ages 6-22. Children receive all of life’s essentials, including healthcare, education, clothing and a balanced diet. The CYEC’s farm, medical clinic and carpentry workshops help move the Centre towards self-sufficiency. The CYEC aims to empower its children and youth to become the next generation of leaders.
