Hello and thank you for taking time out to read this!

My name is John Eyagi Shivisi, an entrepreneurial leadership educator and an innovation for social impact champion. Founder of www.ideahutafrica.com, a social enterprise that offers transformational spaces designed to inspire young people to become innovative change makers.

I am seeking to learn from the experiences of the best so that I can develop innovations to help last mile youths to overcome the ever-present pitfalls for impact startups and their founders. 

My entrepreneurial leadership learning journey which without doubt, will provide me with a once-in-a-lifetime experience, will take me to top global universities and initiatives, among them:

    1. Attend the Washington DC Cohot 2018 of StartingBloc Fellowship meetUp - a highly selective program for highly motivated social entrepreneurs (October 25th - 29th).
    2. Shadowing and training experiences at  SEEDSport in Washington DC (August 27th - 29th) and Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship in Boston(August 30th & 31st). 
    3. Finalising my study and graduating in Social Impact Strategy at University of Pennsylvania’s Centre for Social Impact Strategy in Philadelphia (Sept 4th - 7th).  

However these programs come with a price. The cost of the journey - tuition and upkeep - is USD 4,000, which is why I am now reaching out to you for support.

    1. Tuition: $500 (for StartingBloc Fellowship, after USD 750 Scholarship)
    2. Estimated airfare in economy: $2, 000
    3. Lodging for 3 weeks: $1,500

As an avid impact maker, there is no way I can pass up this chance to learn how to accelerate bigger and sustainable impact in my community, country and continent. My goal is to develop and offer the best entrepreneurial leadership training experiences to the last mile youth in Kenya and Africa at large.

I hope you will consider supporting me - any amount is welcome. By supporting me, you will be making a difference not only in my growth, but the entrepreneurial education of those that my initiatives shall reach and affirming that dreams do come true.  

If you are unable to donate, spreading the word by sharing this page would greatly help as well.

No donation is too small.  A little goes a long way.

Thank you!
