42 Change Makers was founded by Shaban Varajab who had a dream to create a platform that will equip underserved youth from diverse cultures in Kenya with tools, skills, connections, opportunities, mentorship and support to think creatively, create jobs, impact their communities and direct their futures.

42 Change Makers idea came from a series of community mapping meetings and interviews with marginalized youth in rural Kakamega, in Western Kenya which revealed the social, economic and political challenges youth faced despite their dreams, energy, creativity and enthusiasm. They were in dire need for a platform that would mobilize, organize and empower them to be active change agents in their country.

 Like many youths in Kenya, Shaban grew up in the depths of poverty. He was raised by his late beloved grandmother after the untimely death of his parents when he was just a young boy; 11 years old. There were countless nights where his stomach ached from the indescribable hurt that accompanies starvation. There were nights where his unprotected skin hurt due to a lack of adequate clothing. There were seasons where getting education presented insurmountable challenges because of a lack of financial resources.
