Zetech empowers lives in International Charity Day initiative
Zetech University in honour of the International Charity Day celebrated annually across the world, held a successful Charity visit at the Good Samaritan Children Orphanage and Rehabilitation Center based in Mathare. Led by a team of students and staff who participated in the event, the Zetech fraternity responded to a call to bring donations and gifts to the Children Home in response to the need to impact the society.
In the drive, the Zetech community managed to contribute in cash and in kind to address current needs of the home and took time during the Charity Day to spend time with the family.
At the event, staff and students took time to prepare meals, clean the Home, feed and play with the kids as well as engaging in one on one sessions with the wonderful children. The friendly family could not hold their joy as most of them interacted with the visiting team and enjoyed the special treats.
While thanking the University for the visit, Founder and director of the Home Ms. Mercy Thuo, thanked the Zetech family for the love and support, noting that the donations delivered were timely and will be used to enhance the lives of the 150 children housed at the facility.
She commended the students for leading by example in society where drug abuse and criminal activities are on the rise due to unemployment among youths, “You are very special to us because you are doing something to help your community. Being an ambassador to this home makes me happy because I started this home as a door to rescue children who go astray due to wrong peers and lack of mentors. I look forward for to putting a mark in Mathare because when you give an orphan education, you have impacted a big family.” she said.
Commenting on the campaign, Moses Maina, Executive Director, Corporate Affairs appreciated the team for taking part in the noble venture, “We wish to appreciate staff and students for participating in the Zetech Love drive that has touched the lives of children in Mathare.” He said, adding that his office is working on additional community engagements.
