Kibabii University strives to have a positive impact on the surrounding communities especially during these trying Covid-19 pandemic times. Such activity was held on the 22nd of August, 2020. KIBU reached out to the needy Muslim Community living around Mjini Estates in Bungoma County. Through this visit, the University donated 600Kg of cooking flour to fifty families. The distribution was done at a ratio of 12 Kilograms per family. Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ipara Odeo encouraged the community on the importance of education, he expounded on how lack of access to education is considered the root of poverty. Not getting an education can lead to a cycle of poverty. The community is blessed to have access to formal education. Such opportunities should be grasped by the community for a better tomorrow. The families appreciated the kind and rare gesture by the Vice-Chancellor to reach out to them with food especially during a hard time of COVID-19 pandemic.
