At a ceremony held at Kenyatta University on January 10, 2013 GKI Chief Operating Officer Sara Farley and Kenyatta University Deputy Vice Rector Prof. John Okumu signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) linking the two organizations. The partnership came about through the LINK (Learning and Innovation Network for Knowledge and Solutions) program, the third round of which Kenyatta University lecturer Dr. Kennedy Mwetu won in June 2012.
The MOU marks the beginning of a relationship that will hopefully move beyond LINK Round III and spawn many more LINK partnerships. Kenyatta University Dean of the School of Agriculture and Enterprise Development Prof. Waceke Wanjohi expressed her hope that this would be the case, as did Sara Farley. We are very happy to have the opportunity to announce this new partnership.
This MOU signing was part of a larger, two-week intensive that GKI carried out with Dr. Mwetu and his LINK Team. More information and updates coming soon.
