Chairman's Note

The core values of the Jonathan Jackson Foundation stem from my commitment to making real change in Nairobi by empowering the Kenyan people through education and training.

I was born and raised in Eldoret, Kenya and have managed to establish a solid business footprint in both Africa and Europe. Now that I am living and doing business in Nairobi, I know how important economic empowerment is to this and the next generation.

My goal for the foundation is to offer significant impact to disadvantaged communities by contributing to job creation and sustainable income generating initiatives.

I am committed to using my track record of success and experience in commercial enterprise both locally and internationally to make a difference in the lives of the disadvantaged people of Nairobi, especially women and youth because their success is society’s success for generations to come.
