Alumni – Entrepreneurial development
Thirteen of our alumni attended a workshop on recycling plastic at Vintz plastic facilitated by Aruna Varsani (NRCF Board Member). Such opportunities are aimed at empowering our alumni to become economically and socially active. A lot was learned during that exciting tour and as a result, five alumni were interested to venture into the business of supplying waste plastic to the company.
The alumni are also in the process of planning for their end-of-year gathering which aims at discussing various issues concerning them and the best ways to move forward.
We are happy to announce that the construction of the proposed ELIMU HUB was approved and the project kicked off.
Elimu Hub will operate on the NRCF “campus”, creating a physical place where students can support one another, where alumni can return to network and mentor younger students, and where Wepowerment can happen.
Everyone is super excited about the launch of the facility especially our students.
