Creativity has always been the source of progress, change, growth and prosperity. In the 21st century, creativity become a critical skill that separates those who are prepared for the rapidly changing work and life environment and those who are not. Creative people 'know how to think outside the paradigm, to kick-start a new idea, to get a job done better' says a senior CEO, and therefore employing creative workforce becomes a priority for successful companies; academic qualifications are no longer enough.
How effectively education fosters creativity is emerging at the center of the relationship between education and prosperity. Unfortunately, education systems in many countries do not put the right priority on creativity-training of young people. Up to 80% employers report difficulties in recruiting creative employees, which affects employability of young people's and companies’ growth.

"MASK developed my habit for innovating. Since I left school, while studying chemistry in college I invented a new drug which my college intends to patent. For my ability to solve problems in a creative 'outside-box' way, I am enjoying success in my professional life.
I recently got a new job in a FTSE 100 company in Nairobi. Out of 60 candidates I "stood out" for my problem-solving skill, I was told by the company's Director of Human Resources.
I come from a small village in remote rural Kenya. Creativity empowered me beyond my dreams. Thank you, MASK!"
