Changing the Life of Pupils through Corporate Social Sustainability Initiative

Mukuria Primary School, Embu County - Currently, the national government is focused on 4 Pillars under the banner title the Big 4 Agenda. These are manufacturing, universal healthcare, affordable housing and food security. KEPHIS also has one of its core values of corporate social sustainability.

In line with this, the Corporation donated grafted avocado seedlings, a greenhouse with tomatoes planted, a water tank and water collection point to Mukuria Primary School in Embu County as part of its sustainability initiatives In addition, KEPHIS also put up window grills in the ECD classrooms so that the vagaries of the weather such as heavy winds do not disturb the children while learning. All this was officially handed over by the GM in charge of finance and administration Mr. James Ang'awa who represented the Managing Director Dr Esther Kimani. In the speech read on her behalf, the GM said that KEPHIS sustainability initiatives demand that the Corporation work with those in its environment who are less disadvantaged and uplift their standards of living. "All this is in line with our mandate of providing a science based regulatory service by assuring plant health, quality of agricultural inputs and produce for food security, globally competitive agriculture and sustainable development," he said.
"Let me assure you that our officers at the Embu regional office will walk side by side with the teachers and pupils, teaching them good agricultural practices such as use of certified seeds and certified seedlings, the importance of testing soil, water, manure, fertilizers and irrigation water before planting and how to manage pests and diseases in crops. In the process, we hope the pupils will develop agricultural skills; after seeing the avocadoes and tomatoes grow, the pupils will later on venture into farming and agribusiness in their youth and even onto adulthood. He added: "As they manage the greenhouse, they will be determined to produce food for their country in the years ahead. This is because the average age of a Kenyan farmer is 60 years old and this trend can be reversed if young people are taught agricultural skills right from a young age. We hope that some of them will venture into the export business thus bringing in foreign exchange that will build their country," he said.
The event was also attended by former Embu Senator Hon. Lenny Kivuti, alumni of the school and other government officials.
