A dream come true

Spending twelve years in secondary and primary school to make your dream come true is the primary goal of every student. Scoring good marks and getting your dream course in your dream college is a big deal.

Before I talk of my experience at the University, I would like to first thank Hatua Likoni for giving me this opportunity of getting education and reaching where I am. Thank you Hatua.

I knew I achieved my goal when I was admitted to the Technical University of Mombasa to pursue my dream course of Procurement and materials management.

When I fist saw Technical University of Mombasa, what attracted me most was the stately white building with massive pillars. Just imagining that I would be attending my classes in them made me happy and nervous in a good way.

Saturday story reading at the Likoni Empowerment Library

If you want to learn about the different talents of children, teach them something and you will be amazed at how fast they learn, adapt themselves and offer greater ideas of their own.

At the library, we have started a story reading time every Saturday morning starting at 10 am. The aim is to encourage reading culture, realize new talents and improve on public speaking skills among students in Likoni.

The library hosted 40 students the first week of story reading, all from Joy Land primary school in Likoni. The next Saturday, the number of students increased to 60.

The students shared ideas after the story reading, and asked questions from teachers and gap year students who were there to assist them. To participate in story reading, please email or join us at the Likoni Youth Empowerment Centre and Library on Saturday at 10 am.
