Robert from Tharaka has aimed to support people in poverty in various situations, from drugs and homelessness to HIV/AIDS. He founded the Naledi initiative, which works with vulnerable girls in Kenya who have become pregnant and shunned within their community, so they can learn the skills they need to move forward in their lives without being forced into early marriage or a life of dependence and hopelessness. He has also served as a counsellor at the Kenya and South Africa Global Youth Peace Summit, and has
now been accepted by the Institute of Emerging Visionaries in California for a three year intensive course. The Institute aims to foster a generation of young visionary leaders dedicated and equipped to serve humanity. Robert’s aim is to restore hope and self-sufficiency for vulnerable youth in Kenya.
