The Laikipia Multi-Agency Security Team has begun a mentorship programme for school-going children in Laikipia County.
The mentorship programme is geared towards sensitizing children on the importance of peace for the socio-economic development of the region while underscoring the need for coexistence between communities.
“Mutarakwa Primary School was the first to benefit from the programme targeting pupils in upper classes,” read part of the statement from the National Police Service.
During the visit, the security team supplied the school with 18,000 litres of clean water for their domestic use including facilitation of the school feeding programme.
The team replicated the gesture at Dam Mbili Primary School where they further donated soccer balls to support co-curricular activities at the school.
The Multi-Agency Medical officers accompanying the mentorship caravan offered free medical services to residents of Dam Mbili who had joined the security teams in the interactive sessions.
Speaking during the forum, the Dam Mbili Primary School Headteacher Mrs Margaret Macharia thanked the Security Team for their efforts in installing peace in the area which has greatly improved the population of the school from 40 pupils to the current population of 200 pupils.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
