The University of Nairobi Alumni Association (UoNAA) officially launched its inaugural 10 KM walk set for the 4th of May 2024. The walk is one of the many initiatives that UoNAA is using to raise Kshs. 50M to support the over 5000 needy students. The walk aims to move the association from its current Kshs. 2M to Kshs. 50M scholarship funding annually. This is part of the Alumni’s agenda to give back and support their alma matter.

Professor Ayub Mwangi, Dean Faculty of Engineering, while representing the Vice Chancellor further emphasized the need for a collaborative effort by all the stakeholders including sponsors, partners, students, and staff in making this first-of-its-kind initiative by the Alumni Association a big success.

Mr. Isaac Awuondo, Chairman of the Association, called on all the UoN Alumni to give back to their alma mater. He quoted Prof. Jacob Kaimenyi who challenged every alma mater and he went ahead and contributed by   sponsoring 20 students to participate in the walk. He highlighted the efforts of the Alumni Association and mentioned the importance of harnessing the collective efforts of the University’s Alumni.

Mr. Awuondo appreciated all the corporate sponsors that were present during the launch and those who were yet to join the Alumni Walk. 

The launch event was also marked by various commitments whether financial commitment or service commitment by the various partners present who also promised to play their role in making this worthy cause a success as corporate social responsibility is a big driving factor in their various organizations. NCBA bank presented a cheque worth ksh 250,000 with other organizations still being in the process of being onboarded.

The launch event was demonstrated by a walk by all the attendees where the event was happening at the UoN Towers, 4th floor.
