STAMP – Students Talent AND LEADERSHIP Management Program

Kenyan Schools aren’t offering enough opportunities for students to develop skills and talents. Even though students are interested in developing their talents, they often don’t pursue them for a career due to lack of access to information, mentorship and career guidance skills.


YEPI-STALMP program will foster networks and build partnerships with parents, teachers, students, government and other stakeholders to promote the development of education through STALMP hence making talent and other skills accessible to all students especially those with low grades but highly talented in other areas.

STALMP, with its slogan of stamping the student’s talents will nature the lost opportunities in our students.


Other Programs
