Muanzo Mpya Rafiki Mentorship
Our Muanzo Mpya Rafikis spent this summer mentoring at affiliated local schools and organizations in Kibera. The Rafikis mentored students on things such as how to navigate life in the slums and seek opportunities. The mentees were all elementary-aged students, and working with our Rafikis is helping them grow into the strong leaders they can be. This program benefits not only the young mentees but our Rafikis as well. They are all looking to constantly better themselves and their community, and the mentorship program fosters this. We are so proud of the work our Rafikis are doing and cannot wait to see what they and their mentees do next!
