Kigezi Youth Development Mentoring

$17,049 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 255 people in 36 months









Kigezi Youth Mentor And Developpment Project (KYMDP) The vision of this project is to ensure all marginalized and vulnerable youth explore and utilize their full potential for sustainable development.Innocent Mbine is the founder of KYDMP which is a non profit organization near Kabale Uganda. Innocent began his organization several years ago through his eco-tourism business which he donates 10% of his revenue, and clients, like myself, who hear Innocednts story and vision for youth development, education and  sustainable development. 

Innocent continues his vision and more bee nests have been completed and placed to help produce honey to be sold for education supplies for the children of Kabale.

This year they produced over 60 kilos of honey with less than  100 nests. Think what we could accomplish with  500 nests which is the goal for this year. Your help is needed and for only $10 a nest can be made to help provide  sustainable development and education opportunities for the youth of Kabale.


U N Safaris was founded and established by Innocent Mbine who was a Tour Guide since 2010  and acquired  the appropriate skills and safari knowledge necessary as well as making  a wide range of network from local and international that geared for the start-up of this Company.

Our aim is to diligently deliver services to  our esteemed tourists dedicated safe authentic safari tours in Uganda and Rwanda with knowledgeable guides and our office staff is always committed to respond all your inquiry at any time .

       UN Safaris provided the opportunity  for my vision of youth support. Our mission is to reach out and mobilize and empower vulnerable communities of youth through capacity building and support.

Current projects include producing and raising bee colonies for honey. KYMDP currently has near 25 nests with a goal of 100 nests this year. The sale of the honey helps support school fees for these youth. Private school provides the only opportunity for education. Just think of how many kids you can support if we reach our goal of 150 nests. Each nests costs about $10 to produce and is made from natural products. 

Another project KYDMP supports is tree farming. With the support of local community the youth of Kegezi are planting native trees to support sustainable development. There is need to help support the expansion of the project with more seeds and saplings to plant.

The more projects and support we provide for KYDMP  the greater impact and support for the community. 

Please help us raise the $20,000 to expand and support the youth of Kigezi, Uganda.

We are so excited to announce Innocent and Shallon's new baby boy. It is wonderful to think about their growing family and Shery now has a new brother. We will look forward to hearing his name and getting some photos posted to the site. I hope that he can grow up to be like his father and help the youth of Kigezi.

As we celebrate this Christmas let us all renew our efforts to help the youth of Kigezi get an education and hope for their futire.

God bless all for your amazing and generous contributions to KYDMP.

I just received an update from Innocent with very sad news. A week or so ago Innocent was bringing supplies to a family of 6. He found the mother with a dead child due to malnutrition . The mother and father have mental conditions that prevent them for caring for their children.

The only hope is for us to sponsor at least one child to attend KYDMP school . That one child could help save the family. These stories are what have changed my life and I hope that you will help support these efforts. Anyone who has visited and met Innocent, sees his inspiration and passion to change the lives of the Kigezi children.

To end with a beautiful story of hope is Innocent sent me a photo of Pleasant who just returned from Kenya where she has had surgeries to help cure her disease which caused giant tumors in her stomach that made her look pregnant at 13. Her mother lives in a mud hut and they are shunned by villagers. Innocent and his wife met Pleasant and her mother and heard the failed surgeries and efforts to help Pleasant in Uganda. she needed to go to Kenya to have a specialist for her to have any hope.
With the miracles of "Love without Bounderies " , a US non-profit Innocents wife Shallon was able to take them to Kenya for over a month of care and surgeries.

They are back home and Pleasant is recovering with the hope of being a normal 13 year old with a future of hope.

I was able to visit Innocent and see all the great work with Kigezi Youth Development Mentoring Project (KYDMP) in the hills above Kabale. What a wonderful visit to see the 110 children in their uniforms at their new school.
Each time I visit Uganda or any developing country it is amazing to see when children have their basic needs met, they are always happy and smiling even though by our standards they have so little.
My heart was touched each time we visited the school when the children would all gather round and hang on Innocent and I playing games. We also had a campus clean-up event where all the children cleaned up the garbage around campus with Innocent and I . We talked with them about the importance of conservation and keeping our environment clean.
I came back home realizing how much our efforts are needed and what a difference we have made for these children giving them hope for their future.
We are working on our campaign to purchase energy efficient stoves for cooking. Please help our efforts to build a sustainable way of living for this village by contributing to "Be Part of the Solution" and make a real difference in these childrens lives.

The children and school are doing so well thanks to your generous support. Innocents work continues to build sustainable work and resources for the village.
Aquaponics is a sustainable way to grow food and fish. Innocent found a company who can help build and train a local cooperative to run the project at the school where they could train students. We are starting a campaign to raise $5000 to pay the cost of installation and training.
What a wonderful way to support and feed the village in a sustainable way.
Please help support efforts to continue Innocents work. I will be traveling to see Innocent in May and hope to begin this project with your generous support for KYDAMP.

Happy children of Kigezi
