Literature Africa Foundation (LAF) is a Non-Governmental Organization founded and registered in the year 2015. We aim at raising a generation of self-reliant individuals who are educated & empowered as we bridge the gap between education and economic empowerment. We endeavor to transform communities through education, advocacy and capacity building with an aim of challenging societal inequalities.
Our mission is to advance access to quality and inclusive education as well as economic empowerment opportunities for the youth through a long-term holistic approach which includes academic and literacy support, skills training and mentorship.
We envision a Kenya where all young people are educated and economically empowered to fulfill their potential and broaden their experience of the world, irrespective of poverty, ethnicity, gender, religion or special needs.
Our Core Values

A child’s journey with Literature Africa Foundation starts with the opportunity to go to school, but that’s not where it ends. We value listening and responding, offering a holistic service to open up children’s worlds, enrich their lives and encourage them to make their own choices and, in so doing, become independent young adults, prepared for meaningful economically empowered futures.
Relevant and rooted in the community:
To remain relevant, we know that we need to be out there, in the field, operating at the grass roots level; listening, understanding and responding to the needs of the children, youths and other community members.
Strong & good governance:
We believe in the importance of having a strong board rolex with diverse skills and a governance structure that ensures we deliver a sustainable and high quality service. Our board members are committed to service and giving back to the community.
A team with passion and professionalism:
We are passionate about everything we do, and respond to opportunities positively, creatively and enthusiastically. We value teamwork, professionalism and commitment.
