Government worker Job Promotion through ICT Training

I Philip Munywoki Kitheka   of Ngomeni Division, Kyuso District. am  an adult  of  sound mind do  hereby  give a self  testimony concerning  the benefits that  I as an  individual  have acquired from Kyuso Maarifa Centre.

I do work with government of   Kenya   -ministry of state for provincial administration and internal security. I was employed by the government in January, 2008 as a clerical and deployed at the district commissioners HQs- Kyuso.          

On   25th August, 2011 I sat for clerical proficiency test and passed. It is clearly stated in the circular that once a clerk has passed the proficiency, will be promoted to the next job group (From   clerical officer 2 to clerical officer1)

After passing the proficiency examination I had a very little knowledge about computers. I had no certificate as per the requirement for promotion. My certificate was only introduction to Ms-word’ 97. I was supposed to have sent my request for promotion with computer certificate covering.
·         Introduction to computer
·         Ms word                                                                                                                 
·         Ms excel 
-    Ms power point   
-    Internet                                                                                                                     

 These packages are mandatory for one to be considered for promotion.    
I had no other option apart from registering for evening classes with ALIN Kyuso under the free ICT training programme. After undergoing are two month training and issued with a certificates covering the required packages, I  forwarded the certificate to the authorized officer and as a result  I was promoted immediately to Clerical officer 1.Kudos ALIN for your concern to the community of Kyuso and other areas.

·         Free internet connection and browsing keeping me connected to my colleagues.
·         I am also taking my diploma in human resources management - University of Nairobi, Kyuso Maarifa centre has greatly assisted me in internet Research with unlimited research time.

I am also writing my research proposal for my team paper project; Kyuso Maarifa centre library has some of the best books assisting me in my research proposal writing.                                       
My thanks and prayer goes to:
1.      The ALIN administration.
2.      Mr. John ALIN –Field officer -Kyuso.
Mr. Julius Mwonga a tutor at Kyuso Maarifa Centre for their support and concern, they have the heart for people.

May God   bless ALIN!!
