Zetech commits to enhancing community-based Initiatives
The University was pleased to host the Founder and President of NGO Partners for Care Ms Connie Cheren and the leadership team during a courtesy call to the University.
Flanked by the firm’s CEO Executive Director Samuel Wanjau, IT Director John Wang’ombe and Ms Mary Wang’anga, Ms Cheren shared her passion in mentoring a Kenyan-led organisation that empowers lives in the community.
Partners for Care and Zetech University have worked together for some time in the provision of donated resources to identified beneficiaries, including correctional activities in Nairobi where they firms provide free fundamental training in IT.
During the visit, the team met with a delegation led by the VC Prof Njenga Munene, and discussed various partnership opportunities geared towards providing Kenyans with adequate resources to build them up and teach them to take care of themselves and build their communities.
“I am honoured to meet with the University’s leadership and deliberate on greater things we can do as Partners. I am pleased that we have achieved so much together and I believe we will do much more,” said Ms Cheren, who travelled from the US to identify partners who can reach out to society and change lives.
Engaging the community
The visit also saw the University receive 10 handcarts from the firm, designed to help beneficiaries in Ruiru sub-county to enhance their mobility capabilities and assist them in running businesses. This was a boost to 20 already given and donated by the firm to beneficiaries and mentored by the Lions Club- Ruiru.
Moreover, the VC organized for Ms Cheren to meet with Gatundu North MP Hon Anne Kibe; the discussion was centred on business opportunities in her constituency and community initiatives that will benefit Kenyans.
Indeed, through such collaborations, the University will effectively fulfill one of its mandates which is to serve and empower the community.
