Following a commitment to enhance the lives of those in the community, the Zetech university fraternity took time this past weekend to enhance the lives of amazing boys and girls living in the Ruiru Rehabilitation centre, located in Kiambu County.
The centre was hosting a special food donation drive designed to package a Christmas gift for the kids who have been rescued from the streets and offered a better lives, with most of them coming from families that are struggling to meet their basic needs.
During the drive, students and staff members took time off to spend a fun and festive day with the family, taking part in engaging activities such as cooking for the family and their guests, playing with the kids and dance and art presentations showcased by the talented children at the centre.
Through this initiative, the team was able to interact with the kids on a personal level and listen to their individual stories, in order to encourage them to go after their dreams, no matter what life throws at them.
Speaking at the drive, Registrar and Executive Director, Corporate Affairs Moses Maina reaffirmed the varsity’s commitment to making a difference in the community, lauding the home’s management team represented by Eric Wanjala for taking up the noble role of caring for the less fortunate in the area.
“Zetech is honoured to be a part of this initiative and we remain committed to playing our part in enhancing the lives of those in our community.” He said.
After the fun and food, the family and their visitors enjoyed a fellowship led by the varsity’s Christian Union that served to inspire the kids and their care givers, as well as the Zetech family.
The fraternity was also able to present donations in kind including stationery and food stuffs to the centre in support of the food donation drive.
The University continues to work on sustainable community focused projects designed to empower the lives of the less fortunate in the society.
