Kenyan youth living in diaspora have been urged to engage in thoughtful projects and invest back home in a bid to further strengthen the country’s cultural and economic integration.
Laviniah Karanja, a 28 year-old Kenyan living in the United Kingdom (UK) threw the challenge over the weekend when she visited the needy students that her charity sponsors in Nyeri.
Ms Karanja who has a Media Studies Degree from De Montfort University (DMU) in UK is representing the Kenyan diaspora in a UK contest and social platform: “Face of Kenya UK 2014 contest”.
In the contest, the 28 year-old is backing-up Project1917 as her charity of choice by supporting orphaned children pursue their secondary education.
Despite having left her motherland almost two decades ago, the passion that drives her to make a difference for the less privileged Kenyan youths still burns within her.
