G-United is a prestigious one year national volunteering programme initiated by the Presidency and implemented by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. The programme was officially launched at State House Nairobi by H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto on Thursday 18th of September 2014.

This ambitious and dynamic programme aims to:

  1. Promote national cohesion; by volunteering in areas other than their home or residence counties, university graduates will gain invaluable exposure to diverse environments and communities. Whilst on placement with partner primary schools, these volunteers will live with resident host families, further increasing opportunities for meaningful cultural exchange.
  2. Strengthen and support primary education outcomes; educational outcomes such as early reading and math skills will be enhanced, with volunteers under the guidance of teachers, providing remedial support to pupils that have been identified as requiring extra support. As mentors, volunteers will be challenged to inspire, motivate and cultivate a culture of greatness at their partner primary schools. The volunteers acting as education ambassadors will promote school enrollment through outreach and awareness raising campaigns in their host communities.
  3. To equip university graduates who are selected to participate in this prestigious one year programme with essential job and life skills; during which they will go through extensive training and practical experience that will contribute towards enhancing their employability.
