TIC is but a new group which targets the youth and their innovation. All youth from around the globe are welcomed to the group although we currently have all our members being Kenyans. TIC is here to harness the potential in the youth with the view that though our dreams may be different,our target remains the same,SUCCESS. We intend to draft all our ideas, sit round a table to add flesh and mend the scars on our skeleton ideas before coming up with the final draft.
We believe that energy is plenty and the only challenge which we face as a continent and as a globe is to come up with various ways of tapping it. I have no doubt that there still better and safer methodologies of harnessing this energy undiscovered.
As the founder of the TIC, I believe that if we give ours ears to the belittled ideas we shall discover its greatness.
Lastly,we need to know that the most stupid looking ideas are indeed the greatest.
