I am a Kenyan Techprenure - A Family IT Consultant Evelyn Kasina the founder of Eveminet Communication Solutions Limited. I thrive in the Educational space where I train and equip Children and Parents/Guardians on Digital Literacy and Cyber Security. 
I am also a mother of two children and a wife. 
I got the idea to train children when I encountered my son viewing cartoons on my iPad and he would be so swift to clicking the adverts and popups - I was not comfortable with that and I was scared that he would access unhealthy content.  That's how my business idea got born to protect him and his peers.
Funny how I started my business, so for close to one and a half years I converted one of the bedrooms in my house to an office, I would meet my clients in coffee houses then execute my work from the house. Whenever I needed to hold training I would use hotel meeting rooms. What is unique about my business is that I can work from the comfort of my house using my smartphone thus giving me an…

Gian from Indonesia

Hello everyone, my name is Gian and I work for Tobacco control issues and also youth participation in development agendas. But I was not always like this.

I started as of a very very “recluse” person, also very shy. I couldn’t even speak in front of the public and I didn’t really know what to do with my life either.
All I know was I was a victim of child abuse from my former stepfather and my grandfather died of smoking. He had a stroke. And my mother was a survivor. She was a survivor of forced marriage.
When I think about it once I thought my life was not that ideal, my life wasn’t that "complete" like others. But the more I think about it, the more I realize that actually, I am a pretty good survivor.

I rise up every time that I learned from my mistake, I learned from the wounds that I have, the people that hurt me and my loved ones, and I realized that there is an option for me. There is an option for me to actually, be stronger than before rather than be silent and acce…

OUR BELIEVES

OK CHECK believes that linguistic diversity defines Africa, as one of the most linguistically diverse continents on the planet. Language is intrinsic to the expression of culture. As a means of communicating values, beliefs and customs, it has an important social function and fosters feelings of group identity and solidarity. It is how culture and its traditions and shared values may be conveyed and preserved. These are grouped into geographically located categories; the largest being Afroasiatic, Nilo-Saharan, Niger-Congo, and Bantu.
From the Colonialism system, the English language has remained one of the barriers of inclusion and diversity. We conceived by providing quality contents in local languages, we would have a major impact on communities and generates actions from individuals to improve by themselves their living communities. Also, we would generate a positive impact on the valorization on local cultures and reverses the effects on the colonialism system for a new generatio…

OUR MISSION

OK CHECK aim to create a multi-platform language that promotes contents on their own local languages, other than using ex-colonials’ languages and promotes cultures and diversity of African and other developing countries.
Our mission is to raise the richness of the diversity of those cultures, and examples of success stories that could be reproduced to generate an economic, social, environmental, political impact on their local communities. We believe that ideas are not enough to start something, you need to get the motivation to start our own venture. We would like to propose some tangible examples from individuals, who have been passing through this step, and by their own example and success stories, inspire a whole new generation of the number of occasions and opportunities they could access and increase their awareness of the possibilities that could be offered to them, but also to their own communities depending of their needs. We also believe that everyone could create their own…
