The Generation for Change and Growth (GCG) is a non-profit development agency headquartered in Nairobi Kenya with field offices in Garissa, Wajir, Mandera and Marsabit counties. Our goal is to provide climate change adaptation, Prevention of violent extremism and radicalization, Youth Engagement and Empowerment, Gender and Advocacy.
Since its founding in the United States, GCG partnered with both local and international initiatives in Kenya and the United States to build the capacity of communities and provide local solutions to the challenges affecting Northern Kenya communities. GCG participated and designed several projects that provided resilience and supported the communities in Northern Kenya to mitigate drought, prevent violent extremism and radicalization, empowered and supported young people to earn a decent income through digital work and outsourcing. Guided by our belief and policy of implementing practical and cost effective programs, we believe our organization is contributing to the SDG’s and suppressing marginalization and poverty in our communities.
