Be a Monthly Champion: Empower Rural Youth with I am iKasi

At the I am iKasi initiative, we are on a mission to empower rural youth through digital media skills training and provide them with the resources they need to become storytellers and change-makers in their communities. To sustain and expand our impact, we invite you to become a Monthly Champion by making a recurring monthly donation. Your ongoing support will create a lasting and transformative difference in the lives of these talented young individuals.

Benefits of Monthly Donations:
  1. Sustained Impact: By donating monthly, you ensure a steady stream of support for our programs, allowing us to continue providing digital media skills training, mentorship, and essential resources to rural youth. Your regular contribution helps us make a consistent and lasting impact.

  2. Amplify Reach: Monthly donations enable us to plan and implement long-term initiatives, reach more rural communities, and provide ongoing opportunities for talented individuals who lack access to creative resources. Together, we can empower even more youth to tell their stories and shape a brighter future.

  3. Convenience and Flexibility: Monthly giving is hassle-free and flexible. Once you set up your recurring donation, your contribution will be automatically deducted each month, making it a convenient way to support the I am iKasi initiative without the need for regular reminders.

  4. Collective Impact: Join a community of like-minded individuals who believe in the transformative power of storytelling and equal access to creative opportunities. Your monthly donation, combined with others, creates a collective impact that drives positive change in the lives of rural youth.

Today my dream is within my grasp

I was so unsure of where my life was going before the iKasi Skills course. Today, I know that my story matters and that I am worthy of a shot at life. My advice: if you apply, know that your life, mindset and goals will most likely change or shift. When I joined, it was in hopes that I could pursue my dream of writing stories and assist the youth within our communities. Today, that goal is within full grasp.
