  • Uzuri Institute of Professional Studies

    We have done outreach training programs such as Makomboki tea factory training, where we trained 30 participants in hairdressing and dressmaking as an initiative to empower factory workers and surrounding tea farmers to supplement their incomes through creation of small businesses. ? - In may 2004, we launched a `partnering with the community’ program dubbed, adopt- a-youth program which has seen more than 300 students sponsored by various organizations such as Kenya network of women living with Aids (KENWA), Plan International, Christian children’s fund(CCF), Kaiaini ACK church members Machakos, Consolata sisters, Limuru west childrens home, Help age Kenya and other individual sponsors. In the adopt- a -youth program, we have seen less privileged youth absorbed in the market and are now making a positive contribution to developing their communities and taking care of their families. - Uzuri also sponsors 4 needy students on full scholarship every year. This is one component of the social corporate responsibility and giving back to the society..
