Ep:#50 Future First on how to get more Kenyan children educated TIE Unearthed

    • Business

How can we get more children engaging with learning?

We all know that education is the key to a better world.

But access to education, and the opportunity to succeed once at school, varies drastically around the world.

Today I’m speaking with, Pauline Wanja, the CEO of Future First Kenya. Future First inspires, connects and builds the capacity of public school alumni as relatable role models to provide mentorship, career guidance, scholarship and governance support to their former schools.

We hear about what happened to the education movement in Africa after Colonialism in the early 60s.

Pauline tells us about the reality on the ground for students in Kenya.

And why their model is so powerful.

We hear a story that keeps Pauline up at night. But we then hear about what gives her hope.

And then Pauline tells us who inspires her. Her answer providing such a fascinating insight to her life growing up.

There is so much here. If you’re keen to get a window into another world, understand about an incredible initiative in Kenya, and simply feel injected with hope and inspiration – this one is for you.

So throw on those running shoes, or grab that favourite beverage, and here is Pauline.
