July 30th update

Hi everyone! Because of your generosity we have managed to train 45 trainees in our cohort 3 in Mombasa (with 70 in total). We have funded 10 entrepreneurs and expect to fund at least 10 more from our Cohort 3.


Check out what some of our entrepreneurs are up to:

Swahili Wear

Kuza Freezers


We now have a running hub in Likoni, Mombasa. Next steps are setting up the hub with laptops, a projector and branding. The Mombasa hub is situated at a very ideal location because it is in an area with many young people excited about the potential of making their ideas become realities.


We intend to target more entrepreneurs with special needs because from our market research, there are not many organizations that serve this group. Using our virtual content we hope to incorporate them into our training. 


Our next goal is to open a physical store where we can support our entrepreneurs by helping them push their sales. 


Thank you for your support!
