Kasarani Neighborhood Association raised total KES 412,050 during its fourth Annual Breakfast Fundraiser at Safari Park Hotel on Friday, November 18, to support and expand the SPANT (Securing Potential and Naturing Talent) Scholarship program. The scholarship program has received more than KES 2 million raised through the Association's annual charity breakfast and membership fees since the program began in 2013.
The Vice Chancellor Prof. Paul Zeleza and the Safari Park Hotel General Manager Mr. Japhleth Kimathi both made remarks commending the association on its scholarship program, and urging it to look beyond its membership in raising further SPANT program support.
Former District Education Officer Ms. Roselyne Litaba in her keynote address acknowledged the immense support provided by the Association, pointing at the improved but still dire situation of pupils in public primary schools within Kasarani sub-county.
Aside from USIU-Africa, the Kasarani Neighborhood Association currently has seven other members namely; Safari Park Hotel, Thika Road Baptist Church and School, Kenya Institute of Special Education, Mountain View School, Ruaraka Academy, St. Joseph of Arimathea and Pan African Christian University.
