Dear Friend, Have you been Looking for a Great and Transformational Project to Support?
Your Search has come to a Blessed End.
What is Penta Lighters
Penta Lighters is a 5 Mile Marathon Church and Politics RECONCILIATION & CIVIC EDUCATION CAMPAIGN on a Mission to Harmonize the Imbalances (Bridge the Gap) between the Church (Community) and Politics (Leadership/Governance) so as to maximize the joint potential therein of Consciously and Methodically Mentoring Greater Levels of Impactful & Transformational Leaders in Kenya.
Penta Stands for (5) and each Mile represents 1 year of the 5-year term the elected leaders serve in office.
This Campaign is designed to Holistically Train, Equip and Mentor a New Breed of Leaders for the Next General elections happening in 2027. In the course of the next 5 years, we empower them to be in full community service in the areas they live in.
The GAP we are FILLING.
14,506 Leaders available for Mentorship and Training
The Leadership Mentorship Deficiency despite the Overflowing Numbers of Leaders wanting to Lead in Various Positions of
In the just concluded August 9 2022 General Election in Kenya, IEBC cleared a total of 16,098 candidates to compete for the 6 political seats (MCA, MP, WOMEN REP, SENATOR, GOVERNOR, AND PRESIDENT).
However, only 1,592 would be declared the winners for the available elective seats.
- 1 President
- 290 MPs
- 1,450 For MCAs
- 47 Governors
- 47 Woman Reps
- 47 Senators
This means that after the elections, a total number of 14,506 candidates already lost elections and this number represents 91 percent of potential leaders who need to be mentored and supported to continue serving their communities despite not winning the positions they were running for.
THE BIG QUESTION IS, WHERE WILL ALL THOSE LEADERS WHO NEVER WON GO OR BE FIXED?
It is for this reason that the Penta Lighters Campaign has been designed to at least impact the lives of 50% of the above leaders in the next 5 years when another general election will be held.
As part of our key missions, we have designed a 5-year long Leadership and Governance campaign known as PENTA LIGHTERS whose
Key OBJECTIVES are to: -
- Conducting Structured Civic Education Training to both the electorate and the leaders on how to work together and achieve the common success of our communities.
- Supporting and Holding our Elected Leaders Accountable by being available to fully engage them in their entire 5-year term.
- Launching a Leadership Training Academy to Consciously and Methodically Nature, Equip, and Prepare Servant Leaders for the continuous delivery of great service to their communities despite not being elected while preparing them for the next general elections.
The NEED we are MEETING.
This campaign is informed and inspired by the just concluded general elections that attracted the highest number of contestants yet just a few slots were there to be won. What happens to all those who never won? To answer this, we have designed this campaign as a platform to tap into the hidden leadership potential of all those leaders and as well as having a national civic education platform to holistically continue grooming leaders and educating the community on matters of leadership. We have been losing great brains from among those who never won who end up fading away due to lack of mentorship and support once they lose.
We therefore look forward to working with as many like-minded partners because the mission ahead to implement the above objectives is quite big but fully achievable through partnerships.
When the STUDENT is Ready; the TEACHER appears!
We have developed a Transformational Leadership Training Model to equip and help the leaders under our program manifest their highest level of impact in the community.
We have already prepared a great leadership mentorship menu for our Leadership Mentees until the Grand Launch of this vision on the 25th of March 2023.

My PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.
In the just concluded Kenyan General Elections for the year 2022, i was among the 16,098 candidates who had offered themselves for the available elective positions in Kenya and also among the 14,506 candidates who never won. I was vying for the Nyeri Town Constituency.
It's through this experience that I discovered the above huge gap and in response to the change I want to see, I designed this project so as to bring all those leaders together and start preparing them for the next available opportunity.
The GRAND LAUNCH
We are currently working day and night to prepare for the Penta Lighters Grand Launch on the 25th of March 2023. This mission is so big that we can not do it alone and, for this reason, we hereby invite you to hold our hand through your kind donations that will help us meet the following budget. We have already started fundraising and we have faith that we shall even exceed the target.
EVERY DOLLAR MATTERS
We assure you that every dollar matters to make this vision a great reality. Over 14,000 leaders are already waiting for someone to mentor and equip them with the right tools that will convert them into the Purpose Driven Leaders Kenya is yearning for.
With your donation, we shall effectively implement the above vision in such a way that you will see the manifestation of the great impact from wherever point you will be located in the world.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR KIND DONATIONS AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU MORE ABUNDANTLY.
