Narok foundation secures funds to empower youth

04 June 2014, 14:39

Nairobi - A leadership and entrepreneurship incubator programme, which Narok-based nongovernmental organisation, Asante Africa Foundation, launched has received an annual $20 000 grant to fund its operations.

The Social Capital Foundation, which made the funds available, announced its commitment to support the Asante Africa Foundation’s incubator programme for the next three years.

The Social Capital Foundation has partnered with Asante Africa Foundation to support education and leadership development programmes in the East African region.

Both global organizations recognize that the value of education is naught without life skills and the ability to apply knowledge beyond the classroom.

“The Leadership and Entrepreneurship Incubator addresses the broader needs of education beyond academics. As these young people finish school they must have the leadership and life skills to prepare for successful careers and create positive change in their communities,” said Erna Grasz, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Asante Africa Foundation.

The Leadership and Entrepreneurship Incubator is a catalyst that inspires participants to create their own personal and professional development plans.

Vulnerable youth aged 15-21 from deeply rural areas of Kenya and Tanzania convene for a one-week intensive seminar, followed throughout the year with local individual and group coaching.

They work with their peers across borders to learn from local educators, business owners and peer leaders about personal leadership and development, respecting their bodies, careers, money management, entrepreneurship and global citizenship.
