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.

Solution

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".

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.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
