About this event

This November during the Global Entrepreneurship Week #GEW, we are excited to host a daring entrepreneur Samwel Kimani, Founder & Director Tumaini Innovation Center.

Samwel has over ten years’ experience engaging with at-risk and out-of-school children. Through Tumaini Innovation Center, he engages vulnerable youth in a revolutionary new educational model that breaks down educational barriers faced by street youth and other vulnerable youth in a changing society; leverage their inherent resourcefulness, resilience and independence, and equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to not only get off the streets, but also have successful and productive careers in their community.

His flagship project-Purdue Utility Project (PUP)-develops various multipurpose vehicle platforms by designing locally-appropriate technologies for transportation and agricultural mechanization in developing countries.( )
