Servant Leadership and Character Development
Hunting for the Big Five is not easy, but the reward is a life worth living!
In Africa, the “Big Five” was coined by hunters as the five most difficult animals to hunt on foot. At In Step Foundation’s Children’s Home in Kenya, a fun twist to the Big Five has been developed for the purpose of helping children make positive life choices.
From a young age, the children at In Step learn that practicing the Big Five helps them manage their own behaviors, build relational trust with others, and take foundational steps towards becoming leaders of integrity.
To reinforce these positive choices, the children have the opportunity to earn “Duka Dollars” for exhibiting Big 5 behaviors. They are able to spend their dollars at Mama Carla’s Duka (Small Store)
