When Stephen joined college, he was keen to grow within a network of community changemakers. His first week in school saw him join the Rotaract Club of Kenya Polytechnic University College.
Calvin Jodisi who was the club’s Founding President entrusted him with leadership roles from the onset. First, he served as an Assistant Secretary to the outgoing Secretary, Lilian Obul. The following months were busy for Lilian, therefore, Stephen handled most of the club’s activities, including reporting to the Rotaract Kenya country office and the sponsoring Rotary Club of Hurlingham.
In July 2011, he assumed the Club Secretary position officially and served under President Pritchard Kiliswa. It is during this period that he pushed for the official recognition of the Club by Rotary International. His efforts and those of the team bore fruits. The club received a charter on 14 April 2012. Stephen went on to become the third President of the Club in 2012 / 2013 and had a big task of steering the newly chartered club.
His greatest achievements as a club President include pairing up 37 Rotaractors with direct life and career mentors, championing Umeclick Peace Campaign ahead of March 2013 general elections in Kenya and providing leadership in disaster response and volunteer coordination during West-Gate terror attack in Nairobi.
