Pupils from Kianjau Primary School on Wednesday afternoon braved the scorching afternoon sun and dusty parade grounds to receive rare guests as their school played host to renowned rapper and entrepreneur Kenneth “King Kaka” Ombima, Boston based Philanthropist  Nduta Angel’s Foundation founder Maggie Kimani and Counselling Psychologist Dr. Susan Gitau of Africana College of Professionals.  

“Kianjau Primary School is one of the vulnerable schools within Thika Sub County located within Kiandutu, Kiambu’s largest informal settlement, this is why we decided to partner with Kaka Empire and other key stake holders in this campaign was because majority of these pupils have to overcome challenges at home and within the society to attend classes, and at the same time compete with other pupils from different schools within Thika,” said Maggie Kimani.

Kianjau Primary School was established in 1999 by community well wishers as a non-formal school, the school that has a population of approximately 900 pupils and 17 teachers. 

Speaking exclusively to Thika Town Today Rapper King Kaka expressed his joy in mentoring young minds, “Kianjau Primary School presents a unique opportunity for me and Kaka Empire under the Bank On Me Campaign to mentor these young minds I see a lot of potential in them, I will not relent in supporting them in whichever way, as a matter of fact I recently embarked on a campaign to make sure that we keep our girls in school by making sure that they have enough supplies of sanitary pads, I have also made a promise to the 2018 KCPE candidates that whoever scores 400 marks and above in KCPE they will visit Mombasa I will pay in for their flight and accommodation in full,” he further said.

The guests donated sanitary pads and under garments to be distributed to the close 100 hundred pupils under the 100,000 + girls in school campaign and promised that they will see to it that they support the growth and development of the pupils and raise education standards of each and every pupil in the school.

The headteacher  could not hide his joy and was grateful that through the generosity of the stakeholders who put up the event, the pupils will be able to at least stay in class for longer, with the sanitary pads donated to them, and also at least the boy child was motivated to interact with an accomplished artist such as King Kaka.

"I am greatful for the effort this team of well wishers has put up, my pupils will not be able to focus on studies and aim higher in their academic endevours," said.

Also present during the event were counsellors from Africana College of Professionals Counsellors, Comedian Owago Onyiro, who offered Behaviour change and Mentorship talks during break-out sessions.
