Kelvin Mutava’s Role to a UNDP Student Ambassador

Kelvin Mutava  is  a student  leader, Chairperson of Maasai Mara University Students Association (MMUSA). He has a passion for leadership and spends most of his time outside classes pursuing initiatives that promotes and enhances this interest. Mutava is thriving in pursuit of his leadership dreams and enjoys creation of bridges between realms, making new connections, harnessing peace and giving young people hope, inspiration and mentorship.

Mutava has grown, not only within the University but as a global citizen and a leader. This success, he attributes to an opportunity offered to him by the MMUSA family. Having realised his potential as a leader, his journey has been on an ascending trajectory.

One key milestone is manifested in his membership of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Kenya Youth Sounding Board comprising of various youth leaders across Kenya. “I have been serving in the Board as a representative of all the University students in Kenya. I represent the Academia in this Board,” Mutava.

The UNDP Student Ambassador Initiative was a six months programme from 15th February 2022 to July 2022. Students from Norway, Switzerland, Jordan and Kenya had a rare opportunity and privilege to champion for the UNDP agenda in the University context. “I was privileged to represent not only my University but also my country Kenya,” Mutava said.

The programme also championed for other global and local development agenda such as:

Sustainable development goals (SDGs), The vision 2030 agenda, Vision 2063 Africa Blueprint, The United Nations Youth Strategy, “Youth 2030”, People living with disabilities inclusion in the UNDP, Youth decision making in the environment, and youth climate action.

Mutava is a proud recipient of a certificate of appreciation from UNDP. His advice is, “This University is big and full of opportunities. Being a student and a leader has helped me navigate not only within the University but also to find various opportunities and resources”.

The agricultural sector is a leading driver of ecosystem degradation, health externalities, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Agriculture also provides positive benefits such as food for humans, feed for animals, fibres, raw materials, employment and cultural cohesion. Many of the negative and positive impacts are economically invisible, hence unaccounted for in public and private decision-making.
