Since its establishment ITF has been developing and operating youth development programs to lead the youth of today as leaders with a strong heart and mind as true workers of society with creative and progressive thinking. Our current projects are:

This is a school-based and students-managed business designed to sell clean tap water to community residents at an affordable price; a sustainable business model that pre-finances a community school in order to set up an on-site water kiosk with specially designed and sustainable products.

3. PUBLIC DRINKING WATER FOUNTAIN

The public water fountain project aims to install sustainable tap water stations near playgrounds, city centers, parks, schools and bus stations in Africa which ensure accessible clean drinking tap water. The project also works to bring awareness on the environmental impact of production and waste of single-use plastic water bottles.

4. ERASMUS+ PARTNERSHIPS

ITF operates capacity-building projects that gather global partnerships with the aim of tackling youth unemployment by bridging the educational sector and labor market enabling young people to undergo work-based learning. These projects are co-financed by the Erasmus plus programme of the European Union.
