The last time I had this feeling was 7 years ago in 2012. I felt joy, hope, happiness, freedom name it all when I won an award on “role of youth in building a more democratic Kenya” organized by UNDP, amkeni wakenya and Youth Agenda. I didn’t have anyone to guide and mentor me on […]

Leadership is pegged on the ability to influence individuals, families, organizations, communities and even nations. Everything, we believe, rises and falls on leadership. That is why at ELF we are obsessed with adding tools to the toolbox of young emerging leaders to prepare them for sustainable development of their societies. Since 2012 to date, we […]
‘My leadership journey began in January of 2018 when I decided to join the Emerging Leaders Foundation programme. This decision ignited a transformational leader in me: a leader who is keen on the success of all, a leader who has at heart the values and vision to help others succeed -from coworkers, organizations, neighborhood, community […]
In 2013, Eliud Kipchoge won his first world championships at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships 5000m Junior race and later the Senior 5000m. These could pass as any other wins on the track but with the benefit of hindsight, sixteen years later, a story of determination and persistence can be told. It’s a story […]

I was almost relinquishing my position as the lead pastor of my organisation because we never had consensus in any agenda. All I had was contention after another. When I came to ABLI, I learned how to understand […]

It is often a challenge, especially in the African context, to talk about one’s accomplishments without appearing to be too proud or self-centred. But when the whole continent recognizes your work, remaining silent might be too rude a response to give. Emerging Leaders Foundation was feted with the African Impact Award on the 16th of […]
I have learnt to embrace rejection, that when I received an acceptance mail from Emerging Leaders Foundation, I decided to make the most of this fellowship. An eighteen-year-old girl goes to the clinic, accompanied by her first boyfriend, to treat what seemed like an STI. Nothing could have prepared her from the revelation. I tested […]
We had set up this meeting through Facebook over two weeks ago, before the meeting, Nickodemus had sent me documents to go through to help me understand what he does. This meeting was to introduce me to the man behind the great works I had read and seen on different platforms. For those of you […]
