At Footprints, we are engaging in efforts that are geared towards sensitizing and raising awareness on structural vices among young people and equipping communities to be part of initiatives imparting effective change through leadership. Footprints for Change is building peaceful and sustainable societies by empowering young generations to take charge of their futures and impact the change they want to see. With a thematic focus on youth civic engagement, peace building and leadership development, our approach rests on three keys pillars: Leadership, Innovation and Peace. At the onset our approach aims at inspiring the youth to be change agents in their communities through mentorship-like platforms. These platforms appeal to the consciousness of the youth with an attempt to reshape their mindsets and attitude for responsible civic engagement. In addition F4C works towards nurturing future PanAfrican leadership by strengthening the capacities and leadership skills of the younger generations. Our inherent approach seeks to encourage innovative and constructive youth civic engagement among youth in different spheres as well as inspiring the creation of peace cultures to break the cycles of stagnation and violence.

Our organizational approach is based on collective strength and success. We seek to utilize, strengthen and increase networking with like-minded organizations and institutions. Footprints for Change aims at engaging and assisting organizations/institutes with similar visions and missions for effective and real change to be imparted. We thus invite organizations or individuals for partnership with a vision of building peaceful societies with genuine leadership and service provision.
We work with young people between the ages on 10 – 25 years who are the key stakeholders of transformation for a better tomorrow. These young people are across different sectors, ethnic groups and religious faiths. We believe that youth’s passion and ingenuity brings inspiration and hope for the future. Cognizant of our broken and fragmented societies, we work to inspire youth engagement by conscientizing, sensitizing and raising awareness on social vices and structural challenges in society hindering peace and development. We then empower and equip young people through our mentorship-like platforms that use arts, music, sports and experiential capacity building. We further support and encourage ingenuity among youth to increase constructive civic engagement to rebuild and transform our fragmented societies.
