IN THE BEGINNING… Mentor Kenya happened
“No one is born a good citizen; no nation is born a democracy. Rather, both are processes that continue to evolve over a lifetime. Young people must be included from birth. A society that cuts itself off from its youth severs its lifeline; it is condemned to bleed to death.”
Mentor Kenya’s Brief History
Mentor started as an informal collection of Alumni of the Egerton University (Njoro-Nakuru) who had a passion to give reach out to the community. They reached out to several schools and offered mentorship sessions with intent on motivating the youth to reach out and be better citizens.
At some point, they realise they need to formalise themselves to be able to have a realistic impact as well as develop actual goals and positive direction for the group. Mentor Kenya is the brain child of these courageous persons who appreciated that corruption is casting the nation of Kenya to the dogs.
Why We Do What We Do
The challenge here is it is the youth and women who are worst hit by the after effects of corruption, and yet they are the least involved. The current crop of corrupt is so dyed in the wool of corruption and is more or less beyond hope/salvation. They are the epitome of the problem and cannot be trusted to resolve matters at hand.
The youth are not just the leaders of the future, They Are The Future. If we can salvage the future by steering it away from fangs of corruption, then we have a head start on a Corruption Free Kenya. Kenya presently holds 147th position (or 3rd most corrupt nation as 2015) assuming we have not improved on our status of bad.
In A Nutshell
The saying that if a thief actually identifies you as a thief you are in REAL trouble came to pass. The irony being none other than Robert Mugabe, the president of Zimbabwe, warned his Generals against letting their county’s service delivery becoming as corrupt as Kenya’s.
Mugabe was called to order by Kenyan’s but in all honesty, that goes to show how badly placed Kenya is on the Corruption Index. Even the corrupt acknowledge our levels of corruption, aki ya mungu!
Mentor Kenya Proudly Unvails
We are delighted in our pursuit of a vision to transform the nation Mentoring One Youth at a time. The mentees replicate the process and mentor others (Mentor for Mentor); eventually, breaking the corruption culture.
Developing in them entrepreneurial and leadership skills, toned up with integrity, to evolve a new crop of leaders and salvage nchi yetu Kenya.
