Through our online platforms, Tribeless Youth has been working with social media influencers to drive conversations on what it means to belong. This includes belonging to an ethnic community that makes up the wider Kenyan society, as we know it. The aim of the online conversations was intended to challenge the wider view that the problem with the Kenyan situation is the tribes, while in reality, the problems lie in the disenfranchisement of youth, who are largely seen as political tools intended to propel a few people to power, while the rest of the youth remain unrepresented.
To reach a wider audience, ‘#KenyaTop10’ is to be distributed on various social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, as well as being hosted on Tribeless Youth’s own website.
Tribal Youth wants to oversee the mental shift away from a tribal-based politics. The group hopes to stimulate elections where leaders are chosen based on their capabilities and policies, rather than their tribes. They aim to amplify the national values that unite Kenyans by engaging youth through cultural activities that bring a wide range of people together. Read More

Through its website and new media platforms, Tribeless Youth provides a platform for youth voices to be heard. Read more
