🌟 Exciting Experience at #YES23 - Unlocking the Power of Collective Action! 🌟
ο»Ώ
We had the privilege of attending The Youth Energy Summit (YES) 2023 recently, a global 4-day event that brought together industry leaders and energy enthusiasts through one of our volunteers, Sir Alvin Munene. It was an incredible opportunity for him to connect with leaders, gain valuable insights, and contribute to the global discourse on sustainable energy solutions as a Taka Kazi Africa Volunteer.
ο»Ώ
During the summit, he had the pleasure of reconnecting with his friend, Sir David Nyutu Waithaka. Their shared passion for creating a sustainable future and exploring the various innovative ideas and inspiring individuals from different booths was enriching.
ο»Ώ
Firstly, Sir Shaphan Robert Kigweru from TotalEnergies emphasized the importance of self-discovery and taking ownership of our actions. He reminded them that while we cannot always control the outcomes, we have the power to shape our responses and forge our own paths.
ο»Ώ
Consequently, Sir Pedro Sendao from Grupel S.A. conveyed the idea that in life, we never truly lose; instead, we either win or learn. This valuable lesson served as a powerful reminder to embrace every experience, both positive and challenging, as an opportunity for growth.
ο»Ώ
Furthermore, Ms. Cynthia Olotch from DLA Piper Africa, Kenya (IKM Advocates) advised them that in life, despite facing personal struggles, we ought to persevere and understand our "why" in every endeavor.
ο»Ώ
Likewise, they were able to witness groundbreaking designs of electricity-generating ships from the Republic of Turkey and a sustainable cities project by Huawei, highlighting the remarkable potential of renewable energy sources.
ο»Ώ
Moreover, they participated in an enlightening YES discussion moderated by Ms. Nadia Ahmed, where various speakers shed light on the profound impact of volunteering while reinforcing the significance of actively engaging in our communities and contributing our skills and resources to create a better future.
ο»Ώ
In addition to these memorable experiences, they were privileged to learn from two outstanding individuals who have made significant contributions to the energy sector. Dr. Kenneth Namunje, the founder and CEO of Kipeto Energy PLC, and Sir David Thompson, the Acting Coordinator at Power Africa - USAID, empowered them (Ms. Amani Kabare, Ms. Gloria Kiprotich, Sir David Nyutu Waithaka, Sir Alvin Munene, and many others) to foster sustainable practices in our society. Their empowering wisdom revolved around the importance of consistency, personal growth, and collective action in driving positive change.
ο»Ώ
Lastly, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to every participant, whether they were speakers, delegates, organizers, or exhibitors, for the success of The YES event. By embracing collective action and innovation, we can create a sustainable future for the generations to come.

"We live for energy; let's make it affordable and clean." - Sir George Ofunja, Founder - Taka Kazi Africa
