Ng'arua Maarifa ICT pass out

By Simon Siwa

ICT trainees graduated in a colourful ceremony attended by members of the public from all walks of life. The event which was held on Friday in Sipili Catholic Hall attracted huge crowds which filled the hall to capacity. Trainees were awarded certificates for completing the three-month long training conducted at Ng’arua Maarifa Centre.

The ceremony was presided over by Mr. Noah Lusaka, Arid Lands Information Network (ALIN) officer from Nairobi headquarters. Over eighty graduands were awarded certificates for completing training in computer packages. Speakers were full of praises for ALIN for sponsoring the trainings which were conducted at Ng’arua Maarifa Centre. They also thanked Mr. Brian Bundi the ICT instructor for working tirelessly to ensure they acquire ICT skills. 

Most of the former trainees have secured themselves jobs, courtesy of the training they received in Maarifa Centre. They gave numerous testimonies of how they have benefitted from learning ICT. The trainees cut across all age groups.

Mr. Lusaka congratulated the graduands for their pass out and thanked them for finding time to train in ICT. He also acknowledged the funding from Melinda and Bill Gates which facilitated the training. He urged members of the community to maximize the use of facilities offered by ALIN in Maarifa centre. Lusaka noted that ICT had transformed the way people run their lives and asked the public to move with the pace in which the world is moving. He illustrated the manner in which ICT had eased communications by giving an example of a foreign radio show which he participates in without necessarily being physically present in the studio.

Several ICT students are currently undergoing free computer training in the Centre.
