Mafudi is the new East Africa’s free ads platform. It offers live ads in a wide range of categories – properties and real estate, housing, jobs, education, services, cars and vehicles and items for sale. We are proud to provide a platform that connects East Africans from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Somalia and Rwanda, helping them to buy, sell and share items in their community. We help create jobs and opportunities while reducing waste and clutter.
Mafudi is a Nairobi-based social enterprise that is operated by Youth Future Lab (YFL) with an aim of supporting communities to transform themselves through faith. YFL believes in the idea of helping communities to use the church as a vehicle for enabling communities to use technology and innovation to improve themselves. Using our experience and knowledge of working and living in the UK, YFLis working with East Africans, especially young people within church communities and localities, to have a lasting positive change providing them with a platform to improve their lives.
The idea is to offer East Africans an easy way for people within a local area to buy, sell, trade, and help each other with goods, services, jobs, houses, education and many more ways. This is in line with YFL’s mission, which is to lift the people at the base of the pyramid within the global market economy out of poverty by using technology and economic development as tools for the elimination of poverty by creating jobs, wealth and starting microenterprises. We want to help these people to meet new people, access opportunities and new markets, save and earn money, support the local economy in unique ways and safeguard the economy from waste and further degradation.
