The idea was birthed back in 2015 as a student council based project (Ruaraka High School). The founder named it “Motivated Mindsets Empire” back then. It was later on changed to “Motivated Mindsets In Africa” when the “Slumotivation” program was drafted and injected its activities as the main backbone of first class prioritized objectives. Brian Otieno Owino, was mostly motivated by his background in his journey of touching lives at his humble moments.
