About Us

Vision

We envision a day both refugees and youth in Kenya have access to high-quality education and are able to find or create meaningful employment after completing their education.

Empower beyond education

From refugees to entrepreneurs

From marginalized backgrounds to social & tech entrepreneurs

Mission

We empower young refugees and marginalized Kenyan youth to take responsible positions in their social environment through education; creating a sustainable cycle in which sponsored youth will become sponsors themselves, rendering foreign aid.

Global Innovation Valley stands for something bigger. Together with my team, I am dedicated and passionate about making a lasting impact in the lives of the people of Turkana West – especially the refugees at Kalobeyei and Kakuma camps. We are going to achieve this through digital literacy and entrepreneurship trainings and mentorships.

Our Core Values

We see and feel this through empowerment pieces of training, comfort zone challenges, mentoring, and coaching. We foster a “Start With WHY” mindset.

We see and feel this through sharing the same space and resources, working in teams, and hosting community events.

We are a decentralized organization. We practice this through autonomous management structure through Holacracy.
