It is not always that you will be called to dine with the King and even when you are called, as the Bible warns, it might be because the King wants to assess your manners.
However, today was a different story at a function dubbed for a scholarship ‘ Fins to Swim.” where 500 children from needy backgrounds were awarded full scholarships up to university.
It is at this even that KEWOTA was not only invited to meet the the Governor of Homa Bay, Gladys Wanga, but also earned a recognition slot after chipping into the scholarship kitty through a donation sanitary pads to all the girls under ‘Fins to Swim’.
Speaking on the sidelines of the event, the KEWOTA Coordinator for Homa Bay County Bi Mercy Achieng said that KEWOTA will continue to partner with county governments in order to guarantee a conducive environment for learning in schools for girls.
At the event Mercy was recognized and had a brief tet-a-tet with the Governor.
Research has shown that lack of sanitary towels is a major contributor to dropping out of schools and early marriages.
The even came hot on the heels of sad moment where KEWOTA lost a member Homa Bay.
At her funeral, the CEO Benta Opande sent Mercy with a little gift as a sign of morning together with the late teachers family.
