YU2I is a group of young people comprising mainly students from high school and college students. They began by volunteering their time when local community groups had activities going on where volunteers were needed. With the groups rallying call, “How May We(I) Serve You?”, the group has rapidly risen in number and stepped up its activities.
We undertake medical mission every summer to support health institutions in Africa. This provides an opportunity for volunteers to share their time and medical skills with health professionals in Africa while providing medical care to under served communities. We also send medical supplies and equipment to areas that are in dire need.
Vitendo4africa scholarship program offers equal opportunityin education for underprivileged communities. Please make a donation to support this noble cause.

Many people all over the world dream of coming to America the land of freedom and opportunity. However few of these people are in the least prepared for the rigors of life they encounter on landing in the United States. Immigrants from Africa quickly realize that the social structures like communal associations that help support the day to day life where they come from are non-existent. Those who are lucky to have family to welcome them are hit with the realization that their relatives are caught in the day to day battle of chasing the dollar to survive and support themselves to have any time to take them by the hand in this new found land. The culture shock is confounding, the challenges enormous and many are left confused, frustrated and in a state of despair.
Vitendo Mission Team is excited to share with you a wonderful mission’s trip that will take place this summer. We would like to invite you to participate in this mission’s project. You may want to become a prayer partner or financial partner, or possibly both. Any money you may contribute goes toward reducing cost of travel and medical supplies.
