We work closely with and through strategic partners in the civil society, government and the corporate sectors to deliver the VSO Jitolee strategy effectively.
Your company has great business capability, access to networks, resources and skilled labour. VSO Jitolee can help you harness, maximize and leverage all these resources for the benefit of vulnerable communities through a healthy, sustainable, free and socially responsible private sector.
Whether you can give your time, join a fundraising event or campaign, however small or large your contribution, you can help break down the barriers that trap people in poverty.
In Kenya, energy is growing with the launch of a digital campaign ‘niko 15’ (I am 15), an innovative initiative calling on 15 years olds to use their talent to draw, write, sing or take a photo and share their vision for the 2015 goals. The choice of 15 years olds is not only symbolic but also a great chance to involve young people over the next 15 years, chart their personal progress up to the ages of 30, and also the progress of development in Kenya as a whole.
Action/2015 is a growing global citizen’s movement pushing to ensure that 2015 is the year that will secure a more sustainable and equitable future for people and planet. More than 275 organisations, including VSO, are already signed up to bring together climate and development agendas from grassroots to global levels and create a critical mass demanding both inclusion and change.
With our 50 years of development experience, you can proudly claim to be part of a long-term solution that’s changing people’s lives around the world. We develop ground-breaking partnerships with like-minded organisations to deliver key business and corporate responsibility objectives.
We also offer you the chance to engage your employees in the work you support, through life-changing volunteering opportunities.
VSO Jitolee works with various partners to achieve common objectives and the relationship is based on a common set of values, a shared vision of success and a formal mutual commitment to improve the quality of the working relationship over time.
Partners include national NGOs, INGOs where the relationship is managed within Kenya, government agencies, and the private sector.
