The Alfred Polo Foundation was founded by Mr. Alfred Polo in 2011; who also serves as the foundation’s executive director. The main reason he founded this was to focus on human rights, children and youth rehabilitation, youth mentoring, youth economic empowerment, environment preservation and poverty eradication in Kenya. To that end, Alfred Polo Foundation has carried out activities in schools, universities and youth community based organisations to promote and nurture leadership skills among young people. Other activities include; preservation of the environment through tree planting, wildlife endangerment and protection training for communities in wildlife habitats, streets cleaning activities, sports and competitions that promote human rights and peace, reduce violence and remove boredom and idleness among the youth.
Mr. Alfred Polo has also been very keen on enhancing career guidance and counselling amongst the youth as a way of helping them re-discover their talents early and identify which suitable careers to pursue. This is done through partnership with other organisations and stakeholders, which include involvement of other outstanding personalities, celebrities and volunteers of diverse cultural backgrounds.
It is in light of this that we ask you to support us by nominating our founder, Mr. Alfred Polo, as a 2018 CNN Hero. Not only is he a hero and mentor, he is also wonderful individual who commits himself effortlessly – his heart, his soul, and his time to our youth.
