Total War against AIDS Youth Foundation, Twaayf, was founded by Martin Gitonga and Dennis Mugo, two brothers who were homeless as children and now dedicate themselves to helping other children avoid the streets. Since registering as a community-based organization in Likoni in 2005 Twaayf has grown under the vision and dedication of its leaders and team of international advisers to provide our community with primary education, adult & information literacy, and micro-enterprise sponsorship services.  We continue to seek collaborative and innovative partnerships with individauls and groups working within the Likoni community and the wider coastal region of East Africa.
