KEWOTA leadership lead by the CEO Benta Opande today pitched tent at Rift Valley Kephsa Conference.
Accompanied by the National Treasurer (NT) Jacinta Ndegwa, the CEO urged the primary school heads to think about ways to enhance the quality of learning in schools by looking at their own welfare, the teachers under them and colleagues.
She took time to demystify myths about KEWOTA and what KEWOTA stands for. For instance, she explained that KEWOTA is not a union but a fraternal brother to Kephsa.
“KEWOTA are not a labour movement, neither is it an alternative to teachers union neither are we in competition with unions. We are not a political caucus or women activists. KEWOTA is not a pressure group nor an exclusive women members club,” said Benta much to the surprise of the teachers in the hall.
The CEO also delved in detail about the other products KEWOTA is providing such as Personal Accident Cover and affordable loans.
The NT on the other hand encouraged deliberate partnership among partners because those who attempted to run alone never went far.
The Rift Valley Kepsha Conference going on at Thingithu Secondary School in Laikipia was also attended by General Agoi who demonstrated to the teachers how to access digital books via the laptops that KEWOTA is currently providing to their members.
At the event, KEWOTA also donated hundreds of branded water to the teachers.
