VUPF’s way of doing things
The VUP Foundation believes in the rule of law and as such, it accords young people an opportunity to exploit their talents to the fullest. Our approach focuses on skills development with the view of placing young people in positions of influence and development. We believe in the spirit of volunteerism and most often, we encourage our young people to go beyond good ideas to finding solutions to our ever arching issues. We foster programs that aims at alleviating poverty, encourage youth participation, promote accountability and development. Project ownership is crucial as we walk with the young people through project identification and implementation. But more importantly, we don’t entice our young people with handouts but instead we motivate them to be creative in their millions of ways.
VUP Foundation approach is bottom up as we value ownership of the project at every level including with the grass root population. We have a dedicated pool of young professionals on a wide range of issues (Entrepreneurship, peace and development, environment, policy governance and democracy) who make the ambitions and dreams of other young people come true by working closely with them in identifying real solutions to the issues that desire professional attention.
With appropriate support, VUP Foundation finds it trivial in making youth engagement more profitable and sustainable in nature. VUP Foundation identifies itself with communities that are uniquely in need of help and ensures that project implementation serves the intended purpose. At this point, VUP Foundation relies on well-wishersin supporting our core work. Out of these, we encourage well-wishers to contribute so that together we can bring unique and lasting change.
