Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to create a platform that will inspire and rally young people in Kenya to actively and meaningfully engage in governance processes.
This online social media platform will seek to demystify the misconceptions of participating in governance processes, build knowledge on the why, where, when and how to engage in governance processes and create publicity for youth actively participating in the space.
It's all part of making a better world.
A world where youth are better equipped to create and advocate for the change they want to see through influencing policy. This world will have e network of youth in Kenya who understand and are able to meaningfully participate in governance and are unafraid to champion for the change they want to see.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by young men and women in Kenya. This includes Generation Zs and Millenials. The vision will also impact the local and national government actors as well as the community-based organizations and Non-governmental organizations.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Increased youth participation in governance processes in their local communities
Enhanced skills and expertise amongst youth to effectively participate in governance issues
Increased appreciation of the capacity, the potential of young people in engaging in democracy in Keny
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Online engagement tools, comparing baseline surveys and end year surveys, create opportunities to share testimonials and success stories, monthly reports
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
