Shukrani is a Swahili word for expressing gratitude. The foundation is anchored on the principle of thankfulness and giving back to the society. It draws from 1 Thess. 5:18, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”.

The foundation is dedicated to helping young people from less privileged backgrounds consider and create the meaning, direction and impact they would like in their life, and in the world around them. The foundation seeks to reinforce and cultivate a sense of self-worth and belonging among children and youth, empower them to be positive forces in their communities, and most importantly give them hope for a better future. It draws both from Ubuntu - a classical African concept that is manifested in the openness and availability to others, affirmation of others, warmth towards others and being there for others; and the golden rule, which states, “do unto others as you wish done unto you.” Matthew 7:12. This is a universal ethics that cuts across gender, culture, age, beliefs, and social-economic status.

Focus areas/Activities

i.        Education

Education is the most powerful tool that one can use to change the world. Shukrani home foundation seeks to empower vulnerable children through a good education. Giving them an opportunity to craft the future they desire. The foundation further seeks to facilitate further education to excelling children who wish to study further.

 

ii.      Life skills training & Social Innovation

 

“Give a man fish and you feed him for a day, teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” – Borrowing from this old saying, the foundation strives towards equipping young people with life skills to enable them transition into gainful employment or entrepreneurship and be able to take care of themselves and their families. Furthermore, through coaching and mentoring, the foundation would build a symbiotic relationship between the rural and urban initiatives.

In addition to this, the foundation would provide an environment for innovation, and support start-ups of members through incubation and collaborations with partners and friends.

 

The pursuit for sustainability

The foundation is seeking self-sustenance. This is envisaged to be achieved through a variety of local strategies and actions to reduce operating costs and inject more money into the project. These include producing own products through farming, carpentry, tailoring, Mechanical training, transport business like running own safari business, and bakery for local markets. Collectively, these will ensure that operational costs are minimised while also training and empowering local men and women with skills they would otherwise not have.

In addition, the drawings for the school which is the main activity of the Foundation are in the process of completion and the construction is anticipated to commence mid 2019. The development will take place on the land already donated to the foundation by the parents of Fr. Alex M. Munyao, Mr.& Mrs. Stephen Munyao Kivulu.
