Akad Education Group-Africa & Public Image Inc offer school & holiday seminars for Excellence in Careers, Mentorship &   Value based Leadership.

We speak to youth in Upper primary, High school and College. We challenge them on personal vision for a great future, for “where there is no vision, the people perish” with real tools for success, for “people perish for lack of knowledge”. 

Such vision gives youth internal motivation to better apply themselves in current educational and social activities, resulting in a positive drive to achieve dreams and goals as “Fearless Influencers of society”.

The results of student mentoring. Brian Ngugi of Lenana School has been invited to the Africa Leadership Academy (ALA) finalist interviews 12 – 13th August 2013 in Nairobi. Brian has been chosen out of 3,000 students from 45 countries in Africa, of whom 900 are from Kenya alone. It is our joy to see Brian rise to these levels, succeed at the interviews, and eventually attend college at Harvard or MIT.
