Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
I founded a home based enterprise in 2007 after completing high school which I managed for three years and built a customer base for the eco-friendly bags I was producing. This enterprise enabled me to employ three former street kids whom I rescued directly from the streets, taught the how to produce bags and worked with them. I have always had a heart for the less fortunate since I know first hand what it means to be poor.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
I work with donor partners, volunteer organizations to achieve this objectives. We also work with the government in attracting government funding like the Uwezo fund and Youth fund to help our youth start businesses. Further we work with the business community to help us find opportunities for the youth upon graduation.
