UNISCOO was founded and registered in March 2011 under the societies act by Jed, in the company of a few intelligent friends. Our membership has increased overtime to cover a student base of 200,000+ members from East Africa. We are working to ensure that all students in Africa have a representation in UNISCOO and that all their needs are easily addressed through this platform. So far UNISCOO has been involved in identifiable success stories.

02. Empower

We seek to empower students in all territory institutions in Kenya. It is a core objective of carving out a niche for students' interaction with the society, as a fortress of enlightment; as the workers of the future; as the formers of the incoming generation and to prepare them for leadership roles in the society. UNISCOO's main goal is to make students aware of the various programs in the organization from which they and the society at large can benefit.

03. Inspire

We have different membership plans to inspire and make your experience beautiful as it should be. The basic membership plan is the free account which is guaranteed to every registered member. The second plan is at Ksh. 1,000 with the next one at Ksh. 2,500. Learn more about membership to UNISCOO

Who are we?

UNISCOO is the acronym for University Students Community Organization, which is a student society that works to bridge the gap between the corporate and the higher learning institutions. We offer programs and services that not only sharpen the skills of a youth, but also readies them for hire or into entrepreneurship.

History

UNISCOO was founded in 2011 by the team honcho Mr. Jed Ondiko, in the company of a few other young people. This was following the huge problem that was very eminent at the time, where students completed their undergraduate education and tarmacked for more than a year to finally get something small to cling on.

Membership base

We have a membership base that is strong in Kenya, but has grown through East Africa. Our database is of 200,000+ student members and over 275 corporate partners. This is not all though; we are still growing.

Peace ambassadors

UNISCOO serves as the peacemaker anchor for student sand youths in general, by creating and raising a well-cultured community of young people championing service informed by love. Peace is love and therefore we have an agenda of promoting love within and even outside the student community. This programme is part of the larger UNISCOO ambassador/volunteers programme that recruits members of UNISCOO to represent the diversified ethnic groups and cultures across the 47 counties and other East African nations. Ideally, UNISCOO Peace Ambassadors programme is grounded on UNISCOO peace principles that guide the activities by the peace ambassadors:

  1. Promoting reconciliation
  2. Diversity is strength
  3. Man for man; being our brother's keepers
  4. Collaboration and cooperation beyond ethnic boundaries
  5. Harmony and cohesion

Our primary focus is centered on:

  1. Youth and Service
  2. Encouraging and educating young people on the essence of service in the community through involving them in peace activities.

  3. Peace education
  4. To increase awareness on the necessity and urgency for peace to beat corruption, tribalism, and nepotism, among others, in an aim to reduce war.

  5. Student empowerment
  6. To focus on transforming student mindset so that they do not fall bait of schemes that poison and inform their decisions. This will ensure the rise of a people that seek after peace and are informed by love for humanity and service.

What is UNISCOO peace community?

This is a group of young people channeling their efforts towards bridging the gap between the youth and the community by offering opportunities to participate in peacebuilding activities.
