Nukanti Foundation

The Nukanti Foundation is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to investing in education, empowerment and leadership skills, and hope for youth in communities affected by conflict and poverty.

Children should have the right to play, create, imagine, dream for their futures. Nukanti Foundation enables that opportunity through our programmes.

Your Support Will Help Us Transform Lives

Help us provide the programs that have helped youth living under conflict and in poverty gain the skills they need to thrive as tomorrow's adults and citizens. 

Recently, the Starkey Hearing Foundation featured Nukanti (@Nukanti) in its Operation Change documentaries. The film documented Nukanti's ongoing work in helping transform the lives of Colombian youth, with the help of US President Bill Clinton (@billclinton) and actress/activist Marlee Matlin (@MarleeMatlin). 

The documentary originally aired (15 July 2014) on the Oprah Winfrey Network (@OWNTV) .
