The CSLK SMILE Youth Program is an outreach program  to give disadvantaged youth exposure to SOM Principles and tools, team building, positive thinking, and leadership skills to increase their opportunities as they grow into adulthood.

 

The program in Kisii, Kenya is lead by James Otumba RScP. He leads a morning program at Duke Nyakweba’s compound and in the afternoon at Harambee Boys Home. 

Our 2024 expansion includes BOMA a program that targets high school students who did not have the funding to go to school and are spending time on the streets exposed to gangs, drugs, and crime. 

Our other expansion program is in Kisumu with students with HIV at the Starburst Program.

We discovered as we taught classes on Zoom, that our students were having tons of technical issues. Most of our students attend classes on their phones and apparently not all Smart Phones are smart. It requires a certain version of a phone to handle the Zoom app. Many students don’t have strong internet connections or enough money to pay for internet packets. In Kenya, you can buy or borrow internet time and so several of our students were being dropped because their packet ran out. 

 

Also not all of our Professional Studies (Practitioner and Ministerial) students had laptops and were writing homework by hand, taking a photo with their phone and sending it to the teacher. As one of them, I can assure you, we were extremely challenged with that homework. 

 

This program loans used or refurbished phones to students who are committed to classes but can’t afford the cost of a new phone. We loan laptops to professional studies students for homework, research, and service projects to the Centre.

Meet our Kiswahili Translation Team. These three men, Patrick Ngugi, James Otumba, and Duke Nyakweba are working diligently on translating Ernest Holmes writings and Science of Mind student workbooks into Kiswahili.

 

They began with “This Thing Called You” which has been translated, a book cover selected, and is now in publication! They are currently finalizing “How to Change Your Life”. Their next project will be “365 Days of Richer Living”. They are super busy! In between, those lofty tomes, they have translated the student workbooks for “This Thing Called You” and “Change Your Thinking Change Your Life".

 

As we reach out to other countries in Africa, our Kiswahili translations will make this teaching more accessible. Kiswahili is now considered the unifying language of most African countries. What an exciting time for CSLKenya!
