Members of the Zetech University Rotaract club in July helped inspire the young and the elderly at Githogoro Children’s home. The club joined forces with Focus group to conduct a successful Chapatti Forum that targeted the young and elderly at the home. Their aim was to feed the less fortunate and make the young ones feel part of the society.
The Chapatti Forum is a programme aimed at feeding and relating with street children that kicked off in Kiambu County and has since spread to other parts of the country, passing a message of hope and optimism towards life among the less fortunate.
The dedicated youth prepared a delicious meal of chapatti, rice, meat stew, pork and steamed cabbage which was in abundance for the beneficiaries to devour and enjoy. The volunteers diligently ensured that all elements of the event were well executed.
In addition, in attendance was MCA, Kiambu County Hon Thuo Fiu Nifiu, who supported the initiative, lauding the youths’ efforts; he also urged other young minds to participate community service projects to build the community. ‘’I believe that we, young people, should play our part in building our society, as we are the leaders of tomorrow,” the MCA said.
Furthermore, the children were engaged in a fun activity of dancing competitions where they showcased their talent to the entertainment of the volunteers and guests present. Indeed, the children enjoyed an inspirational day that allowed them to remain cheerful and laugh as they played and engaged with other people.
The university is truly proud of the Rotaract Club for representing the institution in the CSR initiatives it engages in and serving as an inspiration to other learners to do more for their community.
