Brian Magwaro Mogaka

2014 Fellow from Kenya

Brian Mogaka has over five years of experience working in community development. Currently, he serves as the Director of Social Work for Blue Cross Kenya where his duties include rehabilitating and reintegrating street children, transferring life skills to over 100 children whose parents abuse alcohol and other drugs, and also starting AA groups for drug addicts. He is also the founder of Young Change Makers CBO where he uses football as a tool to empower children and youth living in informal settlements through health education, violence prevention, and life skills building. Upon completion of the Washington Fellowship, Brian plans to set up the first youth center in Kisumu, which will give young people from the informal settlements an opportunity to get access to different sports, games, and vocational training. It will also give them an opportunity to be active in community service projects such as digging ditches, clearing bushes, sweeping community markets, and planting trees in schools.
