USIU-Africa Hosts a Team-building and Welcome Dinner for Cohort 8 Scholars

Last Friday, the Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program at USIU-Africa hosted a team building session for its Cohort 8 Scholars, aimed at creating a stronger sense of community among the new Scholars and the Program team. The event, which was followed by a dinner at Lamada Hotel, provided a fun and engaging platform for the Scholars to interact, collaborate, and build lasting relationships.

The team-building session, held at USIU-Africa, saw Scholars get divided into groups and engage in various challenges and games that encouraged them to work together, solve problems, and support each other. These activities not only helped break the ice but also provided an opportunity for Scholars to learn more about each other.

Following the team-building activities, the Scholars were treated to a welcome dinner at the Lamada Hotel, which provided a space for them to further interact with their fellow Scholars and Program staff on a more personal level. In attendance at the dinner were the Program Director, Ms. Linet Aguko, the Director, Advancement and Partnerships, Mr. Eannes Ongus and the Chief Admissions Officer, Dr. Lumbasi.

In his remarks to the Scholars, the Director, Advancement and Partnerships, Mr. Eannes Ongus welcomed the Scholars to the University community and urged them to make the best of their experience.

“Each of you here has what it takes to become the leaders of tomorrow. You are set to begin an extraordinary journey as Mastercard Foundation Scholars with gifted youth from all across the continent, and it is our hope that you will go on to become transformative, impactful leaders in your communities,” he said.
