Kaya Guides aims to reduce depression and anxiety among youth in low-and middle-income countries.

CURRENT OR PREDICTED IMPACT:

  • We offer youth a seven-week guided self-help program that includes self-driven education on therapeutic techniques and weekly remote counselling. 21 RCTs demonstrate that guided self-help has comparable effects to face-to-face therapy.

  • At scale, our intervention could be over 30 times as cost-effective as direct cash transfers at increasing subjective well-being.

  • Our goal is to improve the mental health of 500,000 youth by 2030.
