Building leaders using education & local projects



Many bright, but disadvantaged youth in Kenya need help with university fees. We assist and also require the development of a community project that the student leads during their university career.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Youth who are bright and motivated, though disadvantaged, have the potential to provide leadership to their country, but because of lack of school fees, they often cannot get a university education and thus cannot realize their potential. PATHWAYS Leadership for Progress offers scholarships to motivated youth to the University of Nairobi with the provision that they must lead a community development project. We have 16 scholars but here, only highlight three, Jemimah, Dennis, and Michael.

How will this project solve this problem?

Obtaining a university education will equip the youth with the skills they need to obtain a good job and to assess the problems confronting their country. Working on a community project will develop future leaders who will learn to "pay it forward".

Potential Long Term Impact

We will help Jemima, Dennis, and Michael who are disadvantaged yet motivated youth to get a university degree and to also help their community. Jemima: poultry rearing and agriculture; Dennis: solar power, fish farming and tree planting; and Michael: cassava growing.
