Cultivate's leadership program has helped me to improve my leadership skills. It has enabled me to discover a new way of innovating and managing people. It has helped me to grow in my communication skills, grow in self- confidence as a leader. I have learnt on how to build strong and united team. Now I can implement effective leadership strategies.
I have learnt to receive feedback and able to give feedback from my team. It has increased my knowledge on problem -solving, decision -making, and program design.
Some values I cherished and I feel they are part of my working tools are time management, motivation, determination and dedication, collaboration, communication, flexibility, teamwork, perseverance and creativity, interpersonal relationship, acceptance of failure, compassion and empathy.
I wish many will have access to this program because it is so enriching.
Cultivate has helped me boost my self-confidence and enable me to communicate my vision in a way that truly motivates the people around me.
They have helped me to increase my productivity and develop new strategies that are driving our organization to new heights. Couldn't have done it better myself without you. THANK YOU CULTIVATE!
Cultivate is one of the best organizations that is fighting to help communities have something to fight for. Through their training, Cultivate has impacted my community in a way that is going to propel us to greater heights. If I were to choose again, I would choose Cultivate over and over again.
I have had dreams of launching a ministry for years but there was one piece missing, the training and structure needed to launch this vision and this is exactly where the work of Cultivate comes in.
To NGOs who need to advance in their community work:

Cultivate helps make my job easier by giving me a lot of ways to initiate different ideas I can practice in my community [to improve it].
I got engaged with Cultivate in 2016 at its earlier days of inception. At the time Seed Foundation was struggling and had very limited options to grow. Today, am happy to announce that as the Program Leader I have tremendously grown in capacity as I continue to attend regular online sessions with Elaine through coaching and other resource access through their portal. Seed Foundation is able to expand its programs and capacities reaching out and impacting hundreds in the villages where we operate in the most informal areas in Kenya. The trainings equipped me with the skills and knowledge to approach individual donors from multifaceted cultural settings leading to the current growth and expansion of Seed Foundation's impact. Thank you Cultivate, as all this would be impossible without your solid input.
As a Partnership Preparation Specialist in my organization, I am responsible to train the leaders of the potential partners so that they can be able to elaborate their strategic plan regarding the development of their community. The Cultivate Program Design Course helps me to better understand the process of identifying problems that a community is facing, and solving them. [Exercises we have gone through such as the] “problem tree” and the “solution tree” are very helpful for me.
I am very thankful to Cultivate for this training.

Cultivate has helped me understand time management, to say no to guilt and give assistance and resources wisely, and most importantly, I have learned to take time for myself and my family too.
The leadership courses have helped me so much, especially when organizing community leadership training and community service.
I am looking forward to starting another new course soon!
