In 2023, BIC East Africa collaborated with CFK Africa to distribute 300,000 pens to a minimum of 150 thousand students in Kibera, as well as 24 additional informal settlements in the counties of Nairobi, Machakos, Kajiado, Nakuru, Mombasa, Kilifi, Kiambu and Kisumu. The donations were made at a handover event held at the CFK Africa offices in Nairobi in presence of company representatives and BIC spokespeople.
Commenting on the occasion, BIC East Africa Marketing Manager, Salome Ngugi, said: “One of the major challenges faced in the education space in the country is the lack of resources. Through this partnership with like-minded organization, CFK Africa, we aim to provide students with the necessary tools to succeed and empower them to reach their full potential.”
Mary Ndiba, Interim Executive Director for CFK Africa said, “Talent is universal, opportunity is not! We at CFK Africa believe that education is the only true equalizer that can be offered to children from diverse backgrounds to secure a brighter future. For the last 20 years, we have invested in access to quality education in informal settlements using a multifaceted approach to equip students not only with resources and finances, but to develop character and leadership skills as well. We are very proud to partner with BIC East Africa in the advancement of our cause.”
