The Military Wives Association of Kenya (MWAK) held its Quarterly meeting at the Humanitarian Peace Support School (HPSS) Embakasi, Nairobi.

The objective of the meeting was to introduce MWAK members to the revised strategy following a Mid-term review.

The new Organizational Structure is expected to propel the Association’s expansion across the regions. During the meeting, the new regional leadership was also introduced to the members. One of the key outcomes of the revised strategy is increased inclusive membership. The Association is now officially open to every wife of KDF personnel (serving, retired, and our widows).

Speaking during the event, MWAK Chairperson, Aileen Ogolla highlighted MWAK’s achievements since its inception in 2021. She said that MWAK’s focus for 2024 was to build the membership base, strengthen the programs, and explore additional collaborations to benefit the families.

“As MWAK, we will remain anchored to our values of teamwork, commitment, advocacy, humanity, leadership, and integrity,’’ she added.

During his welcoming remarks, Commandant HPSS, Col John Rongoei said that MWAK was timely. “Thank you MWAK for reminding us that a functional family is key to military life,” he concluded.

MWAK founding chairperson, Mrs. Tabitha Kibochi acknowledged the strides MWAK has made since it was founded. She appreciated the positive impact of MWAK on military families.
She applauded her successor and the leadership team for their commitment to carry on with the vision.

The guest speaker, who is the Chairperson of Kenya Diabetes Management, Dr. Eva Njenga delivered a pertinent health talk.

She appreciated MWAK’s mission which seeks to contribute to the well-being of the KDF family. She urged the women to prioritize their health.

The meeting concluded with the commissioning of the new regional leadership.
