On Monday 10th July 2017, the Regional Director of World Youth Alliance Africa, Patricia Gwambo, accompanied by Regional Intern Daniella Gathiri visited the Disii Mixed Secondary School in HomaBay, Kenya. The visit was to launch the WYA club in the school. This was done in collaboration with an organisation, ‘Scars to Stars,’ which introduced WYA to the school through Emily Bhakita.
During the visit, the WYA club was officially started with the inaugural patron a member of the teaching fraternity Mr. Calvin Odhiambo. Patricia presented him with the necessary materials to begin the activities of the club: The Handbook on WYA chapters, Pens, wristbands, T-shirts and the CTP manual.
The patron and the rest of the teaching fraternity showed great enthusiasm in the beginning of the club. This optimism we trust will translate to the students in conducting activities in the club and growing in the region.
