In PAK we believe that the greatest resource we have is the talent and skills of our diverse youthful members. Young people are dynamic, they have energy, are highly mobile but most important they are creative and innovative. They possess qualities that offer hope to the community
This paved way for the Life Skills Development Project. We believe that young men and women if given a platform to nurture and utilize their talents and skills they will not only develop themselves, gain economic independence but they can also use the same to provide sustainable solutions for challenges affecting them and their community.
We have thus committed ourselves to identify and nurture these skills and talents through various initiatives.
We are currently working with youth to nurture and develop talents they pocess. We organise competitions and showcases touching on but not limited to:
- Essay Writing
- Poetry and Spoken word
- Drawing and Painting
- Photography and Film
- Comedy and Humor
- Story Telling and Narratives
- Acrobatics and Juggling
- Sports and Athletics
- Dance and Theatre
My Mabati Project
Martha, a very old lady whose age is undefined is a poor woman living in Tigania West and her lifestyle touched PAK Meru chapter. She lives with her lastborn son who happens to be retarded and who knows very little Swahili. Martha does not know Swahili at all so it’s very hard to communicate with her, unless a translator is present.
Her roof was leaking and her mattress was dripping water. She lives with her goats and chicken and therefore it was important that iron sheets be bought and her house renovated. Therefore, iron sheets were bought, her roof was replaced, a shed was made for the goat and food was bought to sustain her for about three weeks.
