Tabitha Karanja, founder of Keroche Breweries has established the Keroche Foundation to mentor young Kenyan entrepreneurs. The Foundation's launch comes at a time when the government is preparing to establish 60 new technical training institutes to enhance the skills of the country's youth.
- Tabitha Karanja is founder and CEO of Keroche Breweries. She is one of Kenya's leading entrepreneurs, a remarkable trailblazer and an example of a woman made good against all the odds. Tabitha chose to venture where none before her had dared. She took on an 87-year-old business monopoly and entered an industry with a deeply entrenched male gender stereotype. Tabitha broke the mould to become Kenya’s first home-grown beer and alcoholic drink manufacturer. Today, her company's state-of-the-art factory produces 10,000 bottles of gin and ready-to-drink vodka, as well as 15,000 bottles of beer per hour.
