36 Entrepreneurs Equipped:
Celebrating a Successful Business Training in Nairobi, Kenya!

Transformational Ventures congratulates each of these talented 36 men and women who worked hard to earn their business training certificate!  Each graduate completed a 30-hour, 16 session, interactive, Biblically-based curriculum.These entrepreneurs were equipped and empowered to start or grow their own business as they applied what they learned to continue to develop their new business idea or strengthen an existing business.
Special thanks to the hospitality and leadership team at Redeemed Gospel Church (in Embakasi, Nairobi) who hosted us!Our terrific team of twelve travelled from Colorado, Texas and Connecticut to work closely with each of these motivated men and women. The course involves extensive small group discussions with table facilitators, and we all enjoyed building relationships with our new friends around the tables all week long.

Fifteen of these leaders were also “trained as trainers” in order to take this knowledge back to their communities all over Kenya and Ethiopia. By the end of the week, a few of the Kenyans were already leading the table discussions as well as facilitating from the front of the room.

We joyfully partnered with Yobel International, and were beyond blessed to have Yobel’s energetic, passionate, and talented founder and executive director, Sarah Ray, with us to lead, teach, inspire, challenge and encourage us.

Asante Sana! Thank YOU!  

This training was made possible by an incredible community effort including the dynamic team who traveled to Kenya to co-facilitate the training, many generous financial partners, and dedicated prayer warriors!

We experienced the supernatural power of prayer leading up to and throughout the entire training!

We humbly and boldly ask for your continued prayers and financial support as a vital aspect for the long-term success of this training is in this next stage of continuing to walk with the entrepreneurs and trainers as they apply what they have learned and are equipped to share the curriculum. 

The training was taught in English and Kiswahili, thanks to our phenomenal Kenyan translators, Morgan (pictured here on the right), Martin, and Cathrine! These leaders helped bridge the language and culture gap, creating a comfortable and fun learning environment!

Everline traveled many hours from Eldoret with her 9-month old, Movi, to attend the training. Soon after she completed the course her current place of employment had to close. Thanks to the training, Everline had the confidence and skills to open an M-Pesa business.

The curriculum is full of surprises to keep the participants engaged and laughing, including a hilarious skit involving this rubber chicken! From the “banana dance” and the “human knot” exercise to role plays and personalized workbook activities, the participants learned and applied concepts all week!

“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins…Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms…so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.  To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen!”
I Peter 4:8-11 (NIV)
Thank you again for joining us on this journey of equipping and empowering entrepreneurs around the globe to share Jesus’ love with more people through job creation and purposeful work.  God is glorified when His people are living out the fullness of who He created them to be!
