The Kobo Trust Foundation(TKT) is a non profit organization founded on the desire to empower, transform and build resilience. Through the implementation of projects aimed to improve the lives of its beneficiaries and the communities they come from, our work is to sustainably eradicate poverty through resilient communities in East and Southern Africa.
Founded by Kobo Safaris Ltd., the TKT intervention is a holistic approach which involves rehabilitation of beneficiaries from underprivileged communities. TKT sustainably teaches self-acceptance and love for self while providing shelter, education, health care, life skills, exposure to arts and culture, appreciation for the environment and the spirit of conservation.
Since its inception in 2011 The Kobo Trust has supported a number of children and youth over the years. The shelters we create for these young people are safe spaces where they find themselves enveloped in learning, growing, psychosocial healing, and the chance to see themselves in innovative ideas shared with them.
Some, from a young age, had their destinies change and were diverted from
certainties that would have mirrored the unfortunate lives of those that are often forced to make hard decisions to just get through the day. The hardships are many. The opportunities are far and few between.
At The Kobo Trust we are a stand for the whole child to provide full support not only making a difference in their lives, but knowing their lives will make a difference to others.
