Lifeskills Promoters (LISP) is a Kenyan-based organization that has been empowering children and youth through the provision of appropriate life skills interventions since 1999. Over the years, LISP has partnered with schools, religious institutions, community groups, and government departments to equip thousands of young people with skills for life and lobby for the creation of facilitative policies and legislations for youth empowerment.
In addition to working with children and youth, LISP has expanded her programs to focus on community health, education, socioeconomic development, and institutional systems strengthening. One of LISP’s successes is using life skills and social asset building applications to improve outcomes in education, health and environment, socioeconomic strengthening, and systems strengthening.

LISP’s efforts in empowering the youth holistically have contributed to the organization’s growth and impact across multiple sectors in Kenya.
