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.

I represent the Academia in this Board,” Mutava.

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”.
