Our goal is to empower young people to be change makers in their communities in sexual reproductive health, gender equality, quality education and economic empowerment by using participatory development approaches.
Kinara for Youth Evolution is a youth-led grassroots Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) working in Tanzania Mainland and based in Chamwino Ward, Morogoro Municipal District. Kinara was originally founded as the Morogoro Youth Development Initiative (MOYODEI) in September 2013 when twenty passionate youth gathered to discuss the common challenges they faced in the community. Their most critical challenges were lack of reproductive health education, gender discrimination and few employment opportunities. We have since established ourselves as an active, inclusive, and participatory organization responding to community needs aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals. Our work is organized into four integrated programs in Sexual Reproductive Health and Gender, Livelihoods, Education, and Citizen Data for Advocacy.
