Challenge

It is 57 years since Kenya gained self rule. It is the Kenyan dream through our first President, Jomo Kenyatta that the minority will have a level playing ground in refugeeIt f of their talents. Minorities including refugees have not experienced fairness in distribution of resources and opportunities. Creativity StARTS Here will play a key role in ensuring that everyone gets their share through the Mathare Foundation.

Solution

The time is NOW. We are more than ready to see a prosperous society that thrives on fairness and equality. Accountability and Transparency are the greatest undoing for most entities. We intend to spend the funds donated to this cause in the right way. This will ensure that the beneficiaries get what belongs to them so that they can freely develop their talent. Our intention is to make our organization to be a model organization to other local and international organization.

Long-Term Impact

(1) Collaboration among the minorities (2) Cultivating the culture of tolerance in the coming generations (3) Creating safe spaces where people can interacts and share ideas (4)Building a transparent and accountable organization(5) Building friendship and trust between the Minorities and the elites.
