It's just that they lack people to guide them , '' said Paul Njoroge , an MIT student who returned to his native Kenya last year to teach computer programming at the college that gave him his start.Now back at MIT pursuing his doctorate in electrical engineering , Njoroge may work for a few years at an American company to polish his skills.Then he's going home.
''I think that people like me who have... seen how successful societies are run can bring that back home , '' Njoroge said.
Kenyan Ayisi Makatiani , an MIT track star and electrical engineer , has already gone back to Nairobi.He's trying to build his firm , Africa Online , into one of Africa's leading Internet companies.And Nii Quaynor of Ghana , former research scientist at Digital Equipment Corp. , now runs his country's top Internet provider.

Paul Njoroge parlayed a year of computer training at Strathmore into a scholarship to MIT.He earned a bachelor's in electrical engineering degree in 2000 , is finishing up a master's , and will soon start work on a doctorate.Last summer , he and some other students from MIT returned to Strathmore to teach an advanced computer programming class.
Njoroge also helped arrange a donation of modern computer-networking gear from 3Com Inc..As a result , Strathmore , like Kenyatta University , has an internal computer network that an American college would be proud to own.But getting connected to the outside world is where the system breaks down.

This was the challenge for Paul Njoroge, a native of Kenya, Africa and an engineering student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston.Matriculating at one of the world's best technical schools, in a country that is at the forefront of the information technology revolution, Njoroge became acutely aware of the digital divide that was limiting Africa's participation in a global economy.While attending a leadership development workshop, Njoroge formed a vision for helping his country to participate in this new economy.His vision became reality with the assistance of friends and a respected professor and through his strong personal convictions.
In 1998, somewhat by chance, Njoroge came across a notice in the school paper for the LeaderShape Institute.He had never participated in a leadership development program and had only a general interest in the subject.
The LeaderShape Institute is a six-day leadership development workshop for college students.Its parent organization, LeaderShape, Inc., is headquartered in Champaign, Illinois and provides campus-based institutes at several universities across the nation, including MIT.LeaderShape is also a grantee of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.According to a report published by the Kellogg Foundation in 1998 - "Leadership in the Making: Impact and Insights from Leadership Development Programs in U.S. Colleges and Universities" - LeaderShape is "successfully increasing the ability of college leaders to create organizational visions," and is "increasing the general transformational leadership skills" of participants.
The experience at LeaderShape exposed Njoroge to many new ideas and to different models of leadership.He credits LeaderShape for showing him how to "lead with integrity" and for demonstrating how to have and achieve a vision.At LeaderShape, he also came to understand "that there is no limit to what one can do.The only limit is on what one can dream or envision."At the Institute, he developed an idea for using the skills and knowledge he had gained at MIT to create positive change within his native country.
His plan was to foster collaboration between MIT and a school in Kenya where African students could be taught the power of the Web and Internet technology.To build on his idea, Njoroge sought assistance from one of his LeaderShape group leaders, a respected electrical engineering professor and president emeritus at MIT, Paul Gray.

Njoroge also had the help of his friend and fellow Kenyan, Martin Mbaya who shared his vision.

Njoroge still corresponds with some of the students who participated in the Nairobi project, and he feels it was a success because several of the students have been able to secure Internet technology jobs.He also acknowledges that the inaugural project was only a "building block," and believes that the true impact of MIT/AITI may not be felt for several years.He believes there is great potential for Africans with technical skills and expertise.E-commerce is a burgeoning industry in Africa, and people with the requisite technical skills will be best able to succeed.Njoroge hopes AITI will have a permanent presence at MIT and perhaps even expand to incorporate students at other schools in the Boston area.Njoroge is busy raising funds for the 2001 project that will include an additional school in Kenya and one in Ghana.
Despite his impact in Kenya, Njoroge does not consider himself to be a leader."My greatest joy," he says, "comes from imparting knowledge I have gained and having others use this knowledge to transform themselves.I find it very fulfilling."
Njoroge advises other emerging leaders: "Once you have a vision, you must believe in yourself and in what you are doing and seek out people to guide you.
