P.A.K.E.M.A Initiative was established and launched on July 7th 2012 as an extension to the first program designed and founded by Ms. Winter Okoth in January 7th 2011 as a mentorship program whose main goal was to reach out to the Girl-child in the slums and remote rural areas through collaboration with the identified schools. Mentorship goals were meant to encourage the girls especially touching on areas such as the academics, social education, leadership, empowerment and girl-child health & care among others. Therefore (P.A.K.E.M.A) Mentorship is an alliance of Kenyans & Global Elites extending networking & MENTORSHIP services to young school children and youths situated in slums, urban and remote rural areas of Kenya and beyond by focusing on the empowerment, leadership, critical thinking, socio-economical, spiritual and academical growth of these future leaders.
