What Makes Us Different
What is different about us
We emphasize on service to community by all fellows in the program because we believe that when you teach you learn, and when you learn you must teach.
We are personally in touch with all our current fellows and alumni and this helps us to continuously support them and monitor their progress.
We link our fellows and alumni to high-impact events and forums nationally in Kenya and at the continental level through the African Union Youth Division.
We train our fellows/ participants to be all-rounded individuals
We focus heavily on women but we also work with men to redefine masculinity and help them to change their thinking and embrace partnership with women in leadership
We pair up mentees/fellows with mentors according to their areas of interest or need. The mentorship relationship is along gender lines but there are moments when we do group mentorship with both men and women.
