Creating an Entrepreneurial Mindset

After finishing high school, Martha didn't know what her next steps would be. With both financial concerns and her parent's recent separation, she was not sure how she could continue with her studies. After sharing her story with a friend, Martha learned of CFK's partnership with Nairobits, and took steps to enroll. Martha embraced the program and found the skills she learned to be of immediate value.

"They have taught me so many things, graphic and web design - entreprenership, life skills, and sexual reproductive health. The program has changed me so much, like to be able to face the world with no fear. After I got my diploma, I got an internship at a company called Crablinks Interactive, and now I also do some freelance work. I thank Nairobits and Carolina for Kibera for equipping me with the skills that I needed to be where I am today." - Martha

Our training in financial literacy is a crosscutting initiative offered to youth engaged in a variety of CFK programs, including micro loan recipients, sports, youth peer providers, work readiness, and entrepreneurial development programs. This year, 26 students joined Martha in graduating from our Girls’ Information and Computer Technology initiative.

Of the graduates,

  • 18 are now permanently employed,
  • 3 are completing internships, and
  • 6 launched their own businesses.

Help ensure this progress continues for Martha and other youth in Kibera! Sign up for a monthly recurring donation today. Tuendelee Pamoja. Progress Together.

Thank you from all of us at Carolina for Kibera.

Asante Sana!
