Kibarani Community Nursery School

Kibarani Community Nursery School is located in Changamwe Division in the newly created Kilindini District. The school helps in educating the children who have no chance of getting education elsewhere.

It was a privilege for HOPE worldwide KENYA (Mombasa ICOH Staff) in collaboration with Peer Educators from Ashton (E.P.Z.) Mombasa to donate some food stuff and medicine to the children. They also donated balls and rims for the children to play with. The team also prepared porridge for the children and interacted with them.

It was wonderful to see the children happy as they enjoy their lives like any other normal children.
This are the some of the pictures taken that day.

HOPE worldwide KENYA Workshop (ICOH Program)

HOPE worldwide KENYA (Mombasa) was privileged to host this years ICOH Capacity Building Workshop . The workshop took place at Jambo Paradise Restaurant and the main agenda was "Entrepreneurship Education". The team was privileged to have HwwK Operations Manager, Nicasius Kamani as our Chief Facilitator of the week.
Master of Ceremony was Mr. Newton Nuthu (Program Officer - ICOH Program).
Others were Mr. Julius Nguku (HwwK Technical Advisor ), Mrs. Mary Gitau, Miss Faith Kamau, Noel Asikoyo, J.P. Munene, Mr. Peter Okello, Mr. Nelson Ndirangu and the rest.

ICOH staff members came to understand the difference between Entrepreneurship and Intrapreneurship skills. The facilitator (Mr. Kamani) really uplifted the spirits of staff through his innovative Entrepreneurial & Intrapreneurial skills.

One Mr. David alias Msanii said "What I learnt in this conference, I am going to employ them in my wife some small business. Also, I am going to pass this Entrepreneurial skills to the youths in the community as my work entails socialising with youths"
After the first 2 day workshop on Entrepreneurial Education, the group went to Ukunda (South Coast) for Capacity Building activity.
Different games were played e.g. Volleyball, football, running to mention but a few.
All members had a great time. They socialised, exchanged ideas, took photos, discussed the hardships they face at their workstation and finally they had a great time talking to the Operations Director Mr. Nicasius Kamani .
Believe me, it was really a wonderful Capacity Building activity.
Mr. Nguku (Technical Advisor - HwwK) organised the participants to buy a nice gift for Mr. Nicasius Kamani (Operations Director) for his wonderful facilitation offered to us.
