Youths have made considerable changes especially in Kenya at large. In Nandi Hills, one Ibrahim Kibiwott is a transformative youth from Nandi Hills, a second biggest town in the county of Nandi. He grew in Nandi Hills town, schooled in Township Primary and Griffins Academy schools. He went to a Muslim high school and is now studying at St Paul’s university.
He realized his leadership skills at 15 and by 18 he had put it into practice by empowering the Nandi Hills community by educating them on deliberative democracy.
He rose to fame when he started and chaired a youth group in Nandi Hills town which later on turned to an organization attracting the whole county and country at large.
Both politicians and businessmen including the community lauded the program. The advocacy of issues helped him to be conversant and added courage and soon he raised issues touching on governance and corruption without fear or favour.
Ibrahim formed Nandi Enlighters, a group that laid a foundation with the following objectives:
1. Civic education
2. Talent exploitation
3. Environmental conservation
4. Economic empowerment
All these objectives were put into practise. In environmental conservation Nandi Enlighters started a monthly initiative of cleaning up the town’s litter and gabbage collection with help by Nandi Town Council.
In addition, the group planted 10,000 trees around the the sub-county.
