Kyuso Maarifa Centre organise a motivation day
Kyuso Maarifa Centre has decided to be organizing motivational days twice a month especially to the ICT trainees in the centre so that they may embrace development activities such as agribusiness, value addition and self employment.
This month the centre held one where 60 participants (15 Male 45 Female ) participated. The trainees were briefed on the importance of career development since most of the youth thought computer training at ALIN was enough to drive them into employment. What came out of the meeting is that computer skills is a support to a course that one will take.
The trainees were motivated a were told to be aggressive, determined and courage in live. The field officer used a quote by Churchill to put this through: "Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts." – Churchill
The meeting was coordinated by the ICT trainer Mr. Julius Matei and an Intern Miss Joyce Nafula Wasike.
