Business Entrepreneurship Program

Because of the need for further training, Right 2 Thrive has expanded upon our Introduction to Business Workshops to offer a more comprehensive business mentorship and entrepreneur program.


Micro enterprises play a key role in the Kenyan economy. Of the 50% of adults who are employed in Dagoretti, most run small businesses or work as casual laborers. Our Business Entrepreneurship Program is open to those students who have completed the prerequisite classes in our Empowerment Program. The Program provides participants with the one-on-one mentorship, guidance, access to resources, and skills necessary to pursue employment opportunities, start new businesses or improve upon the ones they currently operate.
