Enda was founded with a mission to bring Kenyan athletic excellence to runners everywhere and fuel economic development in Kenya. Our vision is to have everyone going further, faster, and helping others more than we ever thought possible.
Navalayo “Nava” Osembo and Weldon Kennedy met over a mutual interest in dramatically increasing the amount Kenya benefits from its well earned reputation in running.
Nava comes from a village near Eldoret, Kenya, a major center for Kenyan running which is dubbed “The City of Champions”. A graduate of the London School of Economics, Navalayo is trained as both an accountant and a lawyer.
Weldon is a social-change campaigner & avid runner. He ran email campaigns for Bono’s ONE.org and launched the European offices of Change.org where he ran a team of 45 serving 31 million users as Managing Director of Europe.
