To build a future where young people can actualize their life outcomes, we combine cutting edge social science research with a deep contextual knowledge of the communities that we work with.
Based in Nairobi, our youth-led team consists of diverse, purpose-driven entrepreneurs, development professionals, community mobilizers, and research scientists. What brings all Shamireans together is our collective commitment to our shared values and our belief in the future that we are building.
Mental health problems prevent young people from realizing their potential globally. We have developed Shamiri, an effective tool for youth mental health and wellbeing. We are scaling this tool through an innovative, community-oriented and breakthrough healthcare model. Youths experience improvements in their mental health and wellbeing, build and foster important character strengths, strengthen their interpersonal relationships and do better in school.
Fundamental to our approach is combining rigorous social science research with a deep contextual understanding of the complexities of the communities that we work with.
