Our Story

In Kenya, youth involvement in civic matters is very low. Recently, we conducted an online survey regarding the involvement of youth in the coming elections. The results indicated that more than half of the youth did have voters card but not many of them were willing to take part int the next elections.

Majority of the correspondents expressed that they lacked confidence in the current election process and felt left out and their opinions are never considered by the old folk.

Very few were interested in vying for political seats, majority cited lack of funds and corruption as a hindrance to get involved with the coming elections and politics in general. Unfortunately, some were not even aware that there seats for young people.

ARE INTERESTED IN VOTING

The youth believe that their voice doesn’t count, yet they carry the majority of the population.They wanted a safe platform where  they could air their issues track the performance of their leaders and discuss among themselves issues affecting them.
Hence, the birth of Chaguo Na Sauti.

OUR GOALS

Our current objectives being an election year mainly focus on civic and voter education as well as advocating for democracy, peace and unity.

  • Provide a safe space for young Kenyans to voice their issues.
  • Get as many young people to register as voters.
  • Get young people to vote for the right leaders.
  • Train young aspiring leaders.
  • Administer civic and leadership forums.
  • Administer peace talks for young people.

Our end goal is to see a country of men and women who are patriotic and actively engaged in national and political matters.

We believe that it is in the young generation that our hopes lay upon and it is in them that our dreams of our country can be realized. So we target the youth of Kenya and encourage them to be better leaders and better citizens and spread their good will, not just within the country but to the world as well.

Our goals and objectives are also closely aligned with United Nations sustainable development goals and they are our map and guide.
