New Technology plays a major role in keeping Tertiary Students engaged during COVID
Kakenya’s Center for Excellence now has the Internet and with that the opportunity to connect with the outside world. This has been especially important for the tertiary students as it has enabled them to stay engaged with the school, their studies and Dr Kakenya Ntaiya.
It has been very difficult for Dr Ntaiya, who resides in the USA, to be separated from the school she founded and the students she cares so deeply for, throughout 2020, due to the pandemic. Recently she has established regular contact with groups of the tertiary students via Zoom as small groups of the young women have been able to congregate at the school for short sessions.
It has also been possible to bring the latest news from the school to international donors through webinars. Recently a webinar was held which connected Dr Ntaiya in Washington with the students and staff at the school in rural Kenya, to discuss the Covid-19 situation in Kenya and the impact it has had. Watch Dr Ntaiya, 2 students (Cynthia and Faith) and Diana (Communication Officer) speak in the Webinar here.
