The theme of Mtaa Challenge is about promoting local solutions to local challenges through a two-months competition, training and mentor-ship program. The ideas was founded by Kenyan renowned rapper Juliani who is passionate in working closely with the young people in finding creative and innovative solutions from the neighborhoods (Mtaa) and later exposing them to other markets and networks.
My major role today was to give feedback / direction to the nine teams who presented wonderful ideas from starting a library, public toilet, social spaces among others. The last presentation is scheduled for next Saturday on the 5th April 2014, a panel of judges will select the best project and provide professional direction to all the teams. It is always a great pleasure working with like-mind youth groups, and I thank Juliani and his team for inviting me.
