By recognizing, rewarding and celebrating our heroes we aim to raise generations of Kenyans with values, free of corruption and impunity!

Twenty Thirty Ventures Ltd. is a not-for-profit transformational Social Enterprise that aspires to engage in activities that are geared towards fostering a socio-cultural order that binds Kenyans by venturing in social cultural activities that are a celebration of being Kenyan. We believe that there is a strength that comes from diversity and from unity and it is time to channel it positively for the enhancement of our Nationhood.

The two main impediments to Kenya achieving its development objectives are corruption and impunity. Various attempts based on retribution and punishment of culprits are ongoing involving a great many government and nongovernmental players. These attempts have largely failed, despite millions of dollars of taxpayers’ and development partners’ money being spent. There are two ways of nurturing a child; positive reinforcement trough reward for good deeds or punishment for bad deeds. Most of the current attempts to fight corruption and impunity are centered on punishment. We propose that the fight should also incorporate reward in order nurture a positive change in our belief system to foster national unity and reconciliation of our peoples. We need to start recognizing the people in Kenya who go about their business in a honorable and ethical way. We need to uplift and reward them and use them as mentors for future generations. It is time to approach Africa's problems differently. The Mzalendo Halisi Awards is an initiative to identify, recognize and reward Kenyan heroes, past and present. Modeled along the Alfred Nobel Prize, the awards aim to be the standard benchmark of Kenyan character and the highest recognition a Kenyan individual or institution aims.
