Posted on July 9, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |


E.L.I or Emerging Leadership Initiatives is a, non-profit making organization with a Mission of empowering and developing Africa’s emerging leaders through leadership development, entrepreneurial training, Vocational Skills and micro-funding for business start-ups.

“An empowered community, equipped for the development of others”

We target the vulnerable members of our community i.e. Youth and Women

Women and Youth are Africa’s greatest asset and its numeric strength. However, they lack relevant skills for leadership and livelihood. They are also faced with an environment of increasing crime, violence, drug abuse, poverty and joblessness among other challenges such as being locked out of the decision making institutions.

Killings, rapes, robberies, carjacking, drug abuse and drug-peddling in Nairobi’s Eastlands area are so common that crime has become the order of the day. Eastland is in the larger Nairobi province, has a very high rate of unemployment especially among youth and as a result the crime rate is high as depicted recently in Dailies. This state of affairs has been highlighted in the Newspapers in articles titled Dying Young in Eastlands, and Playing Cops and Robbers dated May 10th 2004 and December 4th 2005 respectively. It is common knowledge that most criminals operating in Eastlands are aged between 15 and 25 years according to police reports.


Connie Kivuti the Executive Director of ELI is in Sweden, Stockholm and she would like to meet with and invites all like minded individuals, leaders of different organizations and the Kenyan community living in Sweden – Stockholm in order to share her vision of the community.

The open house will be on Friday 11th July 2008 at UpplandsVäsby, Hembygdsgåden, Hagvägen 2, Pukslagargatan.
The venue is just next to the Train Station.
