I'm a social worker, community leader, entrepreneur and a minister of the Gospel.
For more than 15 years I have been part and parcel of community development projects in the area of environment, education, counseling, mentorship programs and helping and encouraging the youth generate small scale business (income generating activity), which involves children (kids, Pre-teens), teens, youth and young mothers.
For the last two years I have been working on another project, a Project for writing photo stories that involves the daily life in the slum and the groups that I had mentioned earlier on. The stories are meant to inspire, bring out the best in people and build their high self esteem. To make them value where they live at that moment and learn how they can improve their daily lives. I’m looking forward to writing more photo stories and do more mentorship programs in the slums of Mukuru.

"Our pictures are worth a thousand words"
Need to make this incoming project a success:
For my upcoming developments to be more effective, I’m looking for support from well wishers to purchase relevant gear for the cause.
For Professional photos and videos taken to reduce renting costs
For now , I must hire a camera when doing photo stories. Due to financial constraints, I’m unable to pursue more project ideas as I do not have a capacity to afford the high rental costs. The benefits of purchasing a camera include but are not limited to;
• Enable clear and concise capture of more photo stories
• Enable income generating activities (Videography and photography) that will support the Mentorship Programs
Cost Implication – KES 200,000
Camera Details: Nikon D750 FX-format Digital SLR Camera Body Only - Black
To edit the photo stories, videos and write blogs
Currently, I must use the Cyber Café to write reports, edit photos and videos and this requires funds because it is costly. Having a laptop will allow the following to happen;
• Photo and Video Editing
• Presentations and Blog write ups
• Report writing
Cost Implication- KES 85,000
Laptop Details: HP Pavilion 14 X360 I5 10th 10210U 8gb - 1tb + 256ssd Hdd - Windows 10 Home- 14" Screen Touch
To print programs for education and printing services to generate income to run mentorship programs, kids programs and Art programs
Printing costs are quite high thus purchasing our own printer will open a myriad of doors for both me and the community. The key benefits include the following;
• Printing Presentations
• Printing Educational Programs
• Offering Printing Services to act as an income generating tool to sustain my future projects.
•Support slum kids with PRINTABLES: learning Resources , ACTIVITIES & WORKSHEETS. For many poor families are not able to print such resources because it's expensive with other local service providers.
• Charge half amount of all printing services to all students from Mukuru Slums in order to access more learning resources.
Cost Implication – KES 215,000

With the help of few friends who we share similar ideas, I will dive deeper into target group clusters
The Funds will help me achieve my vision and mission:
"Engage the Disadvantaged in meaningful activities to have a friendly environment fit for living."
''To help young people discover their full potential and explore.''
I'm in need of the funds by the End of May 2021, so as to continue with the projects in the month of June 2021.
I have really enjoyed working for my community, and my desire is to see a community that has a conducive environment for kids and young people to exploit their talents, have access to right information and good education, "It is no secret that a good education has the power to change a life".
I'm very grateful for this Platform that has allowed and given an opportunity to such people like me to share my heart for my community, I appreciate you for your Noble cause.
Thank you for your contribute on to help make this happen ..
