KEPHIS Donates Shoes to Moi Girls Nairobi Following Fire Tragedy

Moi Girls School, Nairobi - KEPHIS today visited Moi Girls School, Nairobi, and donated 56 pairs of shoes to needy students. This follows the tragic fire incident last year that destroyed a dormitory. Present at the event were KEPHIS MD, Dr. Esther Kimani, the school deputy principals, teachers and students.

Dr Kimani urged the students to work hard and not to look back at past events but focus on the future since every problem has a solution.

She also encouraged them to embrace agriculture since it is a source of self-employment and a well-paying job if practiced effectively and efficiently. 

She promised to partner with the teachers to ensure that agriculture in the school thrives well through training from KEPHIS inspectors on various aspects of agriculture. 

“KEPHIS can assist you in soil testing through our laboratories and advice on the type of certified seeds to plant and management of pests and diseases,” the MD said.

Corporate Social Sustainability is one of the six core values of KEPHIS where the Institution practices sustainability initiatives to members of the society in line with its mandate.
