This chapter focuses on Juliani's philosophy and program, both of which aim at improving youth lives as generated by youth themselves, especially his Kama Si Sisi Program expressed through his Mtaa Challenge project. Kama Si Sisi is a self-described “one of a kind attitude change campaign” for youth and community empowerment. The Mtaa Challenge is indicative of the campaign's philosophy. It involves a group of young people from different residential areas in Nairobi coming together, working with trainers and coaches to brainstorm ideas, surveying their neighborhoods, and identifying possible projects to undertake. These project ideas are arrived at through a process involving communal discussions and prioritization. To make them more meaningful, the projects are organized as competitions with the best three projects awarded 100,000, 75,000, and 50,000 Kenyan shillings for first-, second-, and third-place winners, respectively.
