Cre8 East Africa

Cre8 is a Dutch organisation that uses a creative theatrical process to stimulate vulnerable young people in East Africa to analyse the challenges they face and to find ways of addressing those. Cre8 works together structurally with YADEN, an organisation based in Nairobi, Kenya that works throughout the East African region to assist young people in identifying their potential and developing that potential into skills that can earn them a decent living.

In each project that Cre8 and YADEN have undertaken together, they have used a creative, innovative, highly inclusive and participatory approach that has become known as the ‘Cre8 in 8’ Method. Between 2006 and 2012, this method was used in six projects for vulnerable young people in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
