Lukenya Pillars of Transformation (LPT) is a Kenyan Non-profit, Student led Community Based Organization that seeks to build a people’s capacity for self-reliant skills through projects and initiatives, active participation in training and mentorship programs and thereby improving the standards of life.

The Lukenya Community is one of the major communities surrounding Daystar University Athi River Campus and is located approximately 50 kilometers south of Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. It is home to close to 10,000 people. It is a commercial as well as an educational center which is rapidly urbanizing due to a high demand of houses and food products. Being an educational center, Daystar Athi River campus has seen an influx of students from within and outside Kenya coming to pursue their careers and improve their living standards. This has further attracted a large number of people from outside coming to invest in rental houses and in business. The University has offered employment to close to 2,500 people majority being security guards, cooks, drivers and cleaners.

LPT has two mayor projects underway: One sponsorship program with the main aim to boost the less fortunate children at Daystar Mulandi, especially in terms of paying their school fees which is only Ksh 450 to 500 KES (not even 5 USD) for the pre unit children per term. This program will have a tremendous impact not only in the child’s life but also endorse their families‘ financial stability.The second mayor program is a mentorship program with the goal to connect the youth in the community with individuals who are fully skilled in their area of interest. Currently the mentors are undergoing a two week training before they are connected with their mentees.
