KITO International

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: May 21, 2014, 10:32 AM

Description

KITO International is a non-profit social enterprise dedicated to getting youth off the streets and out of poverty. Inspired and founded by a former street boy, KITO combats homelessness by providing economic opportunities. KITO trains youth in entrepreneurship, financial literacy, employability skills, and life skills. After 2 months of intensive training, KITO youth are temporarily employed with KITO's social enterprise, EcoSafi, in order to gain hands-on experience in a formal employment setting. KITO staff and supporters also seek opportunities to link KITO youth to mentorships, internship, or apprenticeships in and around the community in order to expand the youth's knowledge and confidence in order to set them on the path towards self-sufficiency. KITO is dedicated to the success of each and every youth that walks through its doors and customizes each youth's exit strategy to ensure their continued success and growth. Previous KITO graduates have continued their education, secured full-time employment, and started their own business.
