SOAR Africa, For Change



Statement from the Founder

SOAR Africa is a revolutionary Youth Mentorship Platform developed after years of experience working with Students, Institutions of Learning and other key stakeholders. To this day, I have worked with more than 500 schools across all counties in Kenya speaking with students, parents, teachers and heads of schools. I have developed a wealth of mentorship materials including Motivational Books, Newsletters and Audio-visual materials. I have had the privilege to work with multiple organizations and individuals in community social activities that empower youth and students such as sponsoring exams in needy schools, donations to children homes, free motivational talks and guidance and counselling services to needy schools and individual students. I have conducted Capacity Building on Performance Management for various organization including the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), National and County Governments, Red Cross Kenya, World Vision Kenya, Action Aid (K) and Rift Valley Water Service Board. This platform is therefore designed to give Youths in Primary, high school, College, University and in Community a wholesome outlook in life and to prepare them for their future life.
