The Military Wives Association of Kenya (MWAK) on Saturday 18th June 2022 held a mentorship program at Moi Barracks primary and secondary schools in Eldoret.
The mentorship program focused on upper primary and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education candidates who benefited from lessons on career development, relationships and time management as they prepare to sit for their national exams as well as their future life.
Mrs. Catherine Njema, Eldoret chapter MWAK member, encouraged the students to set goals in life and urged them to be self-aware by knowing their ambitions as a tool for great achievement, “you need to be firm, assertive and know how to manage your time.” said Mrs Njema.
Colonel (Fr) Maingi and Colonel Imam Hashi also spoke to the learners on relationships and urged them to stay focused on education, encouraging the learners to be religious, emphasizing on hard work and discipline for success.
MWAK Chair Mrs. Tabitha Kibochi promised the association’s support to Calvet Kiplagat, a learner at Moi Barracks Primary with a spina bifida condition after she was moved by his determination to pursue learning despite being abled differently.
The MWAK team gifted the schools with learning materials, desks, lockers and chairs and shared a meal with the students. Top achievers and best-improved students were also awarded.
MWAK has conducted mentorship programs for a number of KDF-sponsored schools across the country for the past month, in a bid to bring back their glory as centers of excellence.
