GPFF Kenya Hosts Community Awareness, Citizenship Training in Kariobangi Community
A nation’s people define the character of that country, Brand Kenya Board member Ms. Elsie Adawa told youth leaders at a Nairobi workshop on February 23-24, 2012. “Every citizen should be united by a vision and shared values to work together and align our behavior toward a common goal—promoting the ‘Kenyan brand.'”
The training program, Our Community: Our Responsibility, attracted fifty youth leaders from Kariobangi and aimed to foster responsible citizenship and, specifically, encourage proper waste management in the sprawling community.
The two-day capacity building program at Kariobangi North Girls Secondary School was organized by GPFF Kenya and Kariobangi youth organizations with support of the Nairobi City Council, Equity Bank Kariobangi Branch, Brand Kenya Board, Administrative Police, Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company, Africa Institute of Health and Development, Destiny Africa, Oxford University Press, Addiction Rehabilitation Services, Kariobangi North Area chief, and Global Peace Youth Corps Kenya.
