  • Financial Literacy training: Equity Bank & True North Leadership

    True North Leadership students with creative ideas for improving businesses

    “It will really change the community!” stated Pamela, one of our local community leaders and entrepreneurs. The community will have a higher income, and even the education possibilities and the health status will improve.

    Everyone is quietly listening to the words of Lillian, the trainer from Equity Bank, as she is talking about savings, good debts and bad debts, group accounts, budgeting, income, insurance, health insurance, entrepreneurship. And Salome Wanjiku is more than busy noting down these important headlines of the 3 months Financial Literacy Programme which Equity Bank is now providing to the Kenyans with a target of more than 620,000 people.

    True North Leadership Academy has invited representatives for students, staff, parents, and local entrepreneurs to participate in this meeting with the trainer in Financial Literacy, Lillian.

    The questions are many and they witness that there is a great interest and need for the banking products – all of them! It is a challenge for many of the families in the communities we work with, as banking products have not been very accessible to the common people of Kenya.

    Charles concentrated on creating a business plan

    This basically means that there is limited access to saving accounts, loans, and insurance.  In many communities this has then created the need for savings groups, where a group of people join forces and by saving together also provide a possibility for credit facilities to the members in the group, as well as future possibilities for micro credit.

    The low level of credit facilities has an impact on the investment opportunities, and it is clear that the access to liquidity, money, is essential for growth in Kenya.

    Entrepreneurship needs capital and Financial Literacy

    Financial Literacy is essential for the access to liquidity, as well as for running a business and  a house hold.

    We have partnered up with Equity Bank to have them giving their professional training to our students, staff, parents, partners, and the local communities around our students.

    Our dream is to see the participants gain a knowledge which will enable them to move to the next step in pursuing their dreams, and our mission and vision links up very well with Equity Bank:

    Purpose of Equity Bank:

    We exist to transform the lives and livelihoods of our people socially and economically by availing them modern, inclusive financial services that maximize their opportunities.

  • Martine Kappel talks for Moches Models

    Safari Dreams

    Modeling requires Confidence, Self Esteem, State Management, Dedication, Dreams, Playfulness.

    The balcony of the Theater is packed with glowing eyes belonging to the Models auditioning for the African Fashion Fair. Dorothy Oliech, founder of Mochez Models, tall, slender is busy measuring the models, and coordinating, which is a bit of a task with 52 people.

    Smile from the heart, Dorothy Oliech


    The first talk, on behalf of True North College and Conscious Living, to the Models at Moches was about Self Esteem and Self Confidence, and differentiating between Human Being and Human Doing. This is so essential for being able to receive feedback in a healthy way.

    “Dorothy, you are very lucky to have models who are so open to stepping into new places, and the discussions about intentions and having dreams coming true was indeed inspiring, I wish we had had more time!” Says Martine Kappel, Trainer of Neuro Semantics.

    It is rare to sit with 52 people who show that behind the good looks, so much more is present.

    “Martine, I had a really good talk with the models after the talk. They really opened up, and we could talk about helping upcoming models, giving back to society, and about being together as a team so we can help build up the fashion industry in Kenya”  is the statement from Dorothy Oliech.

    There are great visions behind Mochez, and one of the conclusions was that Martine Kappel will do another training, and assist the models in actualizing some of their dreams, as they will come to True North College and assist us in achieving our visions!

    “The Male Models are eager to visit you at True North College” says Dorothy Oliech, “And they are ready to help”

    The next training will be on State Management.

    The questions to the designers will be:

    “What states would you like to express to the audience?

    The question to the model is:

    “What state do you need to be in, to express these clothes, and what inner resources to you need to express this in the best possible way?

    We will build the Circle of Excellence!

    The question to the assist team:

    “What state do you need to be in for you to best assist the models in expressing exactly what he/she desires to express?”

  • Iddi Achieng supporting Girl Child

    The entrance is alight with the smiles of the girls and guys in Orange T-shirts saying True North College, Re-Defining Education.

    Feet are moving to the music while the audience enters with pads and panties in their hands, delivering the important message in the box next to Virginia.

    By the time Iddi Achieng entered the stage all students showed true African roots and danced!

    Iddi Achieng is a woman passionate for supporting the girl child, and this cause has brought her to this concert, assisted by people who also understand the need for panties and pads for the girls in the rural areas, thereby also assisting them indirectly in attending school and thus pursuing education.

    Charles and Caroline (Director of Theatre) discussing how True North Students will become active in the Theatre world


    The collection of panties and pads has been happening  in many places on earth, and at the moment there are thousands and thousands, so this is really going to touch thousands of girls.


    Staff and Students from True North Leadership Academy support the cause, and we are all looking so much forward to Iddi Achieng visiting us, and enlighten us even more about what is close to her heart.

    Allan, Nixon, Nancy, Petronilla


    As we also have students who are advocating for education, and some are especially targeting the girls, we are looking forward to exchanging ideas of how to assist even more with this.

    Just cant stop!!!!

  • Miss World Kenya


    Susan Anyango and Martine Kappel

    Miss World is Beauty with a Purpose

    Martine Kappel, MD True North College and Conscious Living, had the honor of being one of the judges at the final audition in KICC as well as in the elimination rounds.

    Salome Ndung’u, counselor and field officer at True North, assisted the girls with a debriefing if eliminated.

    It was a meeting with wonderful, intelligent Kenyan girls who were not only pursuing the dream of becoming a Beauty Queen but also of fulfilling a purpose close to the heart of the individual girl.

    True North was invited to train the girls in self leadership and public speaking, and they went through part of the training that also the students at True North College undergo.

    The girls were amazing students who really took all they could learn, and who used the tools.

    We worked with State Management, Personal Powers, Meta Stating, Coming to Conclusion with someone you have lost, Circle of Excellence, Motivation, Intentionality, Presenting Skill.

    We enjoyed every moment, the sad ones as well as the happy ones, and we wish all the girls all the best on their way forward in pursuing their dreams.

  • Journalism classes

    Master Classes have begun when no one expected it.

    It is not every day we may get the chance of being present to a gifted story teller and journalist.

    Dickson Migiro joined True North College at the Parklands Baptist Church on a Sunday, and it is impossible not to be taken by his passion for journalism and story telling in it various forms.

    Inspirational thoughts!

    Dickson Migiro is in his master classes emphasizing the importance of getting quotes right, and be true to your source in journalism. Anything else might cause a case.

    As many students at True North have a passion for journalism and a desire for having a voice in our society some of our talented journalists have volunteered to present a series of Master Classes.

    Let this be the first step to start a student magazine.

  • Women in Samburu

    Rebeca discussing the challenges in Samburu


    Anne has traveled from Samburu to True North College for an education as a CPA. She is an extraordinary young woman, who is highly involved in her community and in improving the conditions.

    As many others world wide she is inspired by Rebeca, who’s story is highly unusual as it bears witness of a womans fight for not just her own rights but for the right and respect of so many others.

    As she recently participated in a women’s conference in Nairobi she moved most of the participants to tears. He heart has reached far and helped many is difficult situations and she has already been an inspiration to us all at True North College.

    What an amazing day to spend with Harry Kimani playing his songs, and new songs in our reception and garden.

    Harry Kimani is an amazing song writer and with his soft, romantic, clear voice we were all blown away by his simplicity and yet so many facets.

    His Manager, Dennis Muganwa, was also a true creative inspiration of ideas, especially talking about our idea of starting a cradle.
