why we do this
High school students studying and living in the rural parts of Kenya have not been exposed to the wealth of information and training in making informed career choices for decent entry into the work force. In the ever competitive job market, such students despite their academic prowess are unable to compete with their peers elsewhere. The Students are left behind in gaining critical information that will impact their future and their communities.
Enable rural economic growth through youth leadership in providing solutions that support their communities and protect the planet.
Sub-Saharan Africa has the world’s youngest
and fastest-growing population.
The median age has dropped to 18 and there are 70 million more Africans under the age of 14 than there were a decade ago. While a growing number of rural youth are migrating to cities, 70 percent remain in rural areas.
We believe in mentorship and its impact on changing the lives of youth in rural communities.
Are you passionate about giving advice and guiding young men and women?
