Junior Achievement Kenya, “JA Mentors On Board (MOB)"

Mentors On Board aims to connect business experience to rural and disenfranchised schools in Kenya, mentoring one school at a time. Through the acquisition of a nine-passenger vehicle, JA Kenya will recruit mentors who will traverse rural Kenya, mentoring students via JA programs and sowing seeds of entrepreneurship in locations and schools JA would otherwise not reach due to limited capability.
