A Kenyan called Mraia decides to do something meaningful for his/her community. Mraia takes up the challenge to understand the community- the people, leadership structures, culture, challenges and civic issues. Mraia believes he/she can do something to bring change to the community. He/she decides to be active in reaching out to other community members who are concerned and interested like him/her. He/she knows that taking selected community members through a civic activity will enable them to contribute to greater change in the community. He/she is interested in the social, economic, political and democratic development of Kenya and has the desire to promote civic responsibility among fellow Kenyans in different settings.
Think of an issue that concerns or bothers you in your community (mtaani), county and even country. Wouldn’t you be satisfied to see change or steps towards change regarding the issue? How much more satisfaction if that change was triggered as a result of your stepping out to initiate and facilitate that process?
That is the #MraiaChallenge
It doesn’t have to be largescale; it is the small steps that matter.
