MASKANI Youth Initiative was founded in February 2018 as a safe space for young people to thrive through interactive learning, innovation, arts, and technology. The founder, Abdulhakim Abdalla, plans to utilize the space to spark and fuel creativity among youth by promoting local talents and skills through technology and innovation; partnering with likeminded individuals and organizations in their flagship outreach activities; and by creating mentorship and networking activities.

MASKANI will help young people to make impactful and meaningful change within themselves and within their communities. As the African proverb goes “If you want to go fast go alone, but to go far you have to go together.”
