About Me

i grew from humble background in sipili. went to a normal school where I went all the way to campus and graduated with bachelors of business adminstration. soon after finushing campus I got interested in skating although its not common sports in Kenya. I started from a begginer to a professional skater. later on I joined the national team and was soon the captain. I remained in the national team from 2012-2015. During this time I won several races. I realized how sports took my mind away from bad influence. and made me realize the impact sports has on the society.

My Business

I am employed but my income isn't enough to sustain my young family wife and two kids. it is for this reason I would like to venture into skating as a business. I would love to use my skills to teach many kids how to skate. Training one kid per session which is normally 1-2hrs I will charge them 3$-5$. in a good day I can train up to 20 students.. making 60$-100$. I would normally train them on weekends as I am working during weekdays. kids are also mainly available on weekends due to school.
the main challenge is buying the skates and the protective gears. I.e helmets, knee pads and gloves. This will cost me 30$ for a pair of skates plus protective gears. I would like to start small going up. Starting with 5 kids will be OK.. that will translate to a capital of about 150$.
thank you for choosing to walk with me through this exciting journey.

Project Proposal

I intend to buy more skating gears for the kids as currently they are skating with no helmets and other protective gears exposing them to more injury risk. Once i have purchased this it will increase the safety precaution measures. thank you for suporting this noble course.
