As part of an initiative under the patronage of Hon Flora Chibule, the Deputy Governor of Kilifi County, KidsMBA was introduced to enthralled children in Kenya's coastal region by ABE director, Kereesa Carrington-Nunez and country head, Bonface Kamau. In total, it is expected that the programme will be delivered to 450 children from three further sub-counties, Malindi, Kilifi South and Kilifi North.
Children in Kenya are on a two-month summer break. During this time some are at risk of falling into child marriages or drugs so we're proud to be part of this initiative which will introduce the fundamentals of entrepreneurship to children in the at-risk age group of 14-16. Entrepreneurship education such as KidsMBA has been shown to help children stay engaged in learning and understand how to create better opportunities for themselves when they leave school #ABEway.
Mr Fredrick Nguma, Chief Officer, Ministry of Education Kilifi County Government, was in attendance and delighted by the programme.
