WHAT WE DO
Through education, we help adolescents to pave their way from slum and poverty all the way to employment and self-subsistence. Here you can read more about the Kenswed method and what we do.
Together, we give teenagers hope and opportunities to discover and develop their talents so that they can contribute to both their own and their society’s future.
Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation helps marginalized teenagers in parts of Africa to pave their way from exclusion and poverty and to employment and a sustainable livelihood. This is primarily done through education. Together with local partners, we locate young people in the slums and help them to educate themselves and find their talents and driving forces, which in turn gives them hope for the future. Because when young people feel hope, they contribute not only to their own development but also to the future of their surrounding society.
The impact already realized in the few years of Kenswed existence has been phenomenal, many children have changed their lives and that of their families. Education has a trickling effect, you educate one and the whole community benefits.
