Being a part of the youth week, Busia County

When we were being recruited to be DOT facilitators, one of the requirements was that we were supposed to have the passion of giving back to the community. DOT gave us this opportunity to empower our community members. As a ReachUp! facilitator I was expected to produce deliverables such as ensuring my participants were able to get employment, continuing their education or start a business. Truth is the organization gave us, facilitators, the opportunity to become all rounded individuals by allowing us to grow in all aspects of life not just in our careers.

The first IYD was marked in the year 2000 as a means of raising awareness of issues affecting young people around the world. Since then, it has been marked annually. In Kenya, the national event will be in Nakuru County.

Collins is one such entrepreneur and he took up the challenge after attending the StartUp! training at KNLS, Nakuru.
