Youthful Faces Jenga is a non-profit program, dedicated to building and furnishing homes for vulnerable children served by our education programs in Kenya.

At Youthful Faces, we believe that a childhood filled with love, hope and dreams starts at home. It’s where children are inspired by their parents, relatives, and communities to become doctors and teachers. Home is where the heart is. It’s a place that feels good to leave and feels even better when we return. Youthful Faces Jenga is recruiting volunteers to help us build better homes -- and better futures -- for children and their families.

How can you help?

Jenga with us! Join Youthful Faces for a life changing, hands-on volunteer experience, constructing new homes for families in need in Kenya. Any and all skills are welcome. Willing hands and a generous heart are the only qualifications needed to make a difference.
