Pamoja Kenya Mentorship Alliance (P.A.K.E.M.A) is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization based in the USA and Kenya, Africa. PMentorship is an alliance of Kenyans & Global Elites extending networking & MENTORSHIP services to young school girls & boys situated in slums, urban and remote areas of Kenya and beyond by focusing on the empowerment, leadership, scholarship, entrepreneurship, critical thinking, socio-economical, spiritual and academic growth of these future leaders.
The 21st Century Mentorship Movement that actively participates in the enlightenment of the young school children and youths situated in the slums, urban and remote rural areas of Kenya and beyond through the powerful, strong and committed networking and mentorship program that majorly inculcate the necessary life skills such as critical thinking, leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, scholarship and well-roundedness among these upcoming next generations of leaders and builders of our nations!
We envision enlightened, productive, peaceful and well-rounded next generation of Kenya's youths and leaders; and a slums free Kenya where poverty, socio-economical injustices and tribalism are expunged by the strong powers of faith, networking and mentorship alliances.
NEED: Our communities are in great need of strong & committed mentorship, more critical thinkers, entrepreneurs, problem solvers, well-rounded, empowered and educated children & youths who are the future leaders of our communities, societies, nations and the World.
SOLUTION: From our founding message, Mentorship and networking are the greatest foundations to achieving successfully educated, well-rounded and critical thinkers in our societies today and tomorrow. Therefore it is paramount to propagate committed and strong mentorship to these young girls and boys who are situated in the slums and remote areas; a great continuity to the fight against despicable issues facing both parties in societies today especially in the slums and remote rural areas where girls suffer in silence and are still devalued and denied of their rights as human beings, they are still victims of inequity, violence, domestic abuse, gender inequality, to name a few of the many social injustices they go through. One of our main values and the main aim is MENTORSHIP, therefore the PMC at these schools will be a great way to help influence the students and promote mentorship, leadership, critical thinking, volunteerism and sense of community service among these students. In order to achieve this, therefore one of our main goals is to help initiate the P.A.K.E.M.A Mentoring Clubs (PMC) in Primary and High Schools situated in the slums, urban and remote rural areas of Kenya and beyond that would be willing to collaborate with us. We will provide the basic guidelines as will be laid out on our PMC Leadership & Guidelines Manual. We will be walking the PMC leaders through the process. This is a great way to engage the students themselves in leadership and enable them to start engaging in more critical thinking and having more sense of community service and volunteerism through the various enlightening activities that PMC clubs will be engaging in. More so, it will be a great way to involve the schools' alumni to engage more in giving back to their societies and reaching out as mentors to help enlighten the students coming after them besides the cross-cultural interactions and continued enlightenment that will be extended to the PMC members by both the Kenyan and Global mentoring individuals or groups associated with the P.A.K.E.M.A Organization.
