Karatina visit

Inset: A group photo with the girls at Karatina University-Nyeri County

In celebrating the international women’s day on 8th March 2016 and aligning to the theme “Pledge for parity”, Dadaab team decided to celebrate it differently by organizing a mentorship program for 20 girls’s at Karatina University, Nyeri County on 9th March 2016. Thanks to the existing MOU between WTK and Karatina University.

The education excursion gave the girl’s an opportunity to nurture a sense of direction and motivation to attain a postsecondary education and training to girls. Further, the girl’s were exposed to new learning experiences that broadened their career awareness and helped in defining clear academic and career goals. The two day educational trip gave the girl’s a chance to interact with other girls at a top National school- Bishop Gatimu Ngandu girls high school to benchmark themselves in academics and get a chance to meet with University students. Within the University the girls’ got a chance to view exhibitions and innovations spearheaded by female students in Science and Engineering Department. The Female University students encouraged the girls to excel in science related careers and go against the odds in the society.
