Imagine Doer 2025: A Day In The Life of A Kenyan Doer Family
On a bustling street in Eastlands, Nairobi, the Omondi household is stirring with the promise of a new day. It’s a modest abode, vibrant with laughter and warmth, and echoes with the quiet hum of ambition. The Omondi’s are a typical ‘Doer’ family, a testament to the transformative power of technology and resilience.
Mama Omondi, an entrepreneur at heart, starts her day early. She sips her morning tea, her smartphone within arm’s reach. It’s not just a device; it’s a gateway to her aspirations. She uses Doer, not just to find cleaning and catering gigs, but also to offer her home-cooked meals to the neighbourhood. Today, she has three homes to clean and an order for her famous pilau for a local office lunch gathering. The app has made navigating her dual roles manageable and profitable.
Simultaneously, in the adjacent room, Baba Omondi scrolls through Doer, marking jobs he can do after his regular work hours. He is a security guard by night but uses his daylight hours to pick up painting, gardening, and handyman jobs in the locality. It’s his way of adding to his family’s income and saving for their dream – a bigger home and better education for their children.
Their eldest, Faith, is a university student who has found a niche offering tutoring services on Doer. It started with Swahili and Maths and has since expanded to include coding, a skill she picked up thanks to the platform’s integrated education programs. She earns while she learns, all while helping her younger siblings, Victor and Mercy, navigate their homework.
For the youngest members, Doer isn’t just an app; it’s part of their life education. They see their parents and elder sister leverage it to better their lives and build a future. They understand the value of work, initiative, and financial planning, all from their family’s involvement with Doer.
In the evenings, the family gathers around the dinner table. It’s more than just a meal; it’s a ritual where they share their Doer stories, the connections they’ve made, the tasks they’ve accomplished, and the earnings they’ve pooled together. The app, while personal to each, is a collective experience, a testament to their shared efforts, and a reflection of their ambitions. The Omondi household may seem ordinary from the outside, but inside, it’s a microcosm of a larger, global shift, a beacon of the ‘Doer Lifestyle’.
