What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

My current challenges are getting partners,sponsors or grants to help carry the vision. Other challenge is the start up of a Kids Haven/Wellness and Palliative Care Center in a new country( Burundi

Actions I’ve taken so far

Setup a Haven in Nairobi Kenya Through well-wishers and adopt a child program have managed to pay insurance fund for 27 kids battling cancer this year We have managed to reach out to 45 families with children battling cancer and we are walking the journey with them.

Start up Feeding Program at one of the hospitals in Burundi for kids battling Cancer and their caregivers. Offer accommodation to the kids and care givers who travel from upcountry for treatments or checkups and have no place to stay

My future goals

My future goal is to build our own big,unique and unresistable Haven both in Kenya and Burundi,where families that have kids battling cancer can find solence during their journey of treatment. A place that will be a get away for kids when they have a treatment break and we can take care of them as their parents/ guardians get their free time to take care of themselves and the other siblings. One word for the Haven would be a Disney World Haven for kids battling cancer and other non communicable diseases.

My motivations to work with a mentor

Help carry the vision and touch the life's of many more children
