Established in 2004, Kheprw Institute is a community empowerment center in downtown Indianapolis focused on helping youth and adults realize their full potentials and make positive contributions to the community. Key to the Institute’s approach are its four social enterprises, which aim to help youth become self-driven and passionate social entrepreneurs. One such enterprise is Express Yourself Rain Barrels, which engages youth in the construction, marketing, and sales of custom-made rain barrels. Other businesses include KI NuMedia (a web, social media, and graphic design company), Africhart Products (which sells charts that depict history from an African perspective), and KI Aquaponics (an aquaponics farm). The Institute is currently raising funds to develop a Youth Center that can provide youth housing and space to launch new businesses, and serve as a model of sustainability with solar panels, rain barrels and urban agriculture projects.
