Jeremiah Kitavi, founder of iMartial Arts, seeks to invest in agriculture in Kenya
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, USA, March 4, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jeremiah Kitavi, the founder of iMartial Arts, has announced plans to invest in Kenya’s agricultural sector. The objective of this initiative is to improve access to healthy food and reduce dependence on imports from other countries. Mr. Kitavi not only aims to tackle food insecurity but also youth unemployment who are battling high poverty rates in Africa’s largest economy.
Growing up in the United States, Kitavi witnessed the effect inequality and poverty can have on a community. He saw how these problems manifested in mental health issues, a problem that often hit too close to home. Kitavi decided to act on the issues that affected his community, improving himself so that he could be of service to others. He attended college while working full time, first to study communication, then to focus on sociology. Kitavi had started studying martial arts after high school, gaining experience from the age of 10 to 15. Then, he returned to art in his early twenties so that he could not only develop a healthy mind and body for himself, but also hopefully one day be able to contribute to development and health. of his family, neighbours, friends and community. .
Mr. Kitavi was successful in his endeavors when he finally opened his online martial arts platform, iMartial Arts. The mission of iMartial Arts is to provide martial arts lessons accessible online. While Kitavi has a passion for helping his immediate community, he chose an online platform so he could also reach anyone around the world who could benefit from martial arts training. Kitavi believes in the power of martial arts to transform mind and body into a better connected system that encourages mindfulness, grounding, flexibility and resilience.
These principles that Jeremiah Kitavi learned through the martial arts, and the experience of helping his community back home, ultimately spurred his interest in pursuing investment opportunities overseas. Jeremiah Kitavi has a particular interest in investing in Africa due to his heritage. Although he grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, his family is originally from Africa. He wants to use his wealth to give back to the continent which is home to over a billion people. Mr. Kitavi hopes that Africa will continue on its path to economic growth even when there are dozens of challenges facing the developing continent today.
Kitavi’s background in sociology played an important role when he initially decided on the best course of action for his investment. Recent research shows that educating community members on the best way to grow plants will help them become self-sufficient and thus reduce poverty levels in the area. Many philanthropists prefer agricultural investments to helping or setting up fundraising initiatives because such projects allow groups of people to work together and see results over time.
Although Jeremiah Kitavi is new to agricultural investment in Africa, the need for further development of the agricultural sector is well known. Non-profit organizations such as Farm Africa partner with rural farming communities who need help with their agricultural endeavors. The organization provides advice, training and services such as animal welfare management and microfinance to these vulnerable groups of people so that they can be self-sufficient in food production. Farmers are able to produce high quality crops which are then sold in the market, earning them income.
It is unclear whether Mr Kitavi will team up with philanthropic organizations such as Farm Africa to achieve his goals, but he has expressed a keen interest in investing in Kenya’s agricultural sector whether it is something he does alone or through partnerships with other organizations. He also wants to inspire other African American philanthropists to invest their time and money in projects that will improve the lives of African citizens.
