Our Mission

i3f addresses the root causes of conflict – unemployment, poverty and hopelessness – by encouraging the growth of employment opportunities, improved infrastructure, and greater stability through youth mentorship and training in business plan development.

What We Do

i3f ensures youth have opportunities to build their future and better their communities by providing mentorship opportunities and business plan development support so they can run profitable, sustainable, replicable, socially responsible businesses. We just finished our inaugural three day boot camp in leadership and business skill training in Kenya in Mid-November. Following the boot camp and business plan creation, judges selected 3 out of 10 young women and men through a business plan pitch contest. These 3 are currently receiving mentorship training and have the possibility of receiving seed grants to grow their business.
