Light and Power Centre

We work with young men (18-25yrs old) in the Gatina Village, Kawangware Slums of Nairobi, Kenya. We mentor young men and engage them in paper bag making project as a way of empowering them economically. The bags which are based on orders from client help the young men get a source of income; providing employment to the disadvantaged in Gatina Village. Our main aim is to empower/transform the young men's lives spiritually by doing daily devotions, economically through the bag making business, socially by engaging them in Community Service Programs.We also seek to find the sponsorships to colleges and Universities. We hope to diversify to other more engaging projects so we can reach out to more young men from Gatina village. Currently, the more bag orders we get, the more lives we touch. So I urge you to partner with us and make a difference in a young man's life in Gatina Village. We supply different sizes and kinds of bags according to clients specification. You're welcome. Thank you

The Light and Power Centre provides disadvantaged young people from Gatina area within Kawangware with mentoring, economic empowerment, and communal involvement opportunities. This is achieved through Bible study, a weekly communal outreach forum and a bag making enterprise to sustain the activities of the Centre. We do this through sharing God’s word, personal development, sustainable enterprise, communal activities and strategic partnerships, so that Gatina becomes an Oasis of Life.


Since 2008, our two-year cycle program has enabled more than 30 young men to better their opportunities in life by either giving them direct entrepreneurial skills or though strategic relationships that have enabled them to complete specialized studies.  For example 3 have been gainfully employed; 2 have ventured into business, 4 are currently pursuing various degrees at different Kenyan and Ugandan universities and 2 are pursuing higher secondary education at, Cornerstone Leadership Academy Uganda, among other positively impacted young men.


The success of the model in impacting young lives has motivated us to scale up our operations and outreach. Consequently, we are respectfully requesting your partnership in the enterprise component of our operations by buying our high quality bags that would suit your specifications. To give you firsthand experience of our bag making process, we would be delighted to host you or your designate at our workshop at a mutually convenient time.
