On September 2nd, 2013, the current scholars and Kusoma International alumni met at Sangai Mohochi’s home. Current scholars had the opportunity to share about their experiences from the 2nd term of school this year with their peers and recent alumni.
The Kusoma scholars alumni also discussed the structure of their group now that they have graduated and brainstormed about how best to stay involved with the Kusoma Scholars family in the future. They elected an interim leadership team comprised of Diana Nyamohanga as Chairperson, Annastancia Gati as Secretary and Richard Zungu as Treasurer. These previous scholars expressed their commitment to remain engaged with Kusoma and support the organization with both financial and non-financial contributions to continue with the scholars program. We are so thrilled at their enthusiasm to support Kusoma and we welcome them to their new positions with the Kusoma International team!
This meeting was particularly celebratory for this group of alumni as they are the first students to have completed four years of high school education as Kusoma International scholars. To commemorate this occasion, Philip Mohochi, Treasurer of Kusoma International’s Kuria Coordinating Committee (KCC), arranged for a special meal including goat meat and the alumni scholars were presented with small gifts and matching Kusoma International – LMEF t-shirts. The shirts will be particularly nice for the alumni scholars to wear when doing community service projects and another activities together!
In attendance at this joyous occasion were the following five scholar alumni: Richard Zungu, Annastancia Ghati, Diana Nyamohanga, Esther Mahiri and Jane Moherai. The current scholar cohort included: Motatiro Joseph, Josephat Gugwa, Lucas Chacha, Sophia Weisiko, Samwel Mogaya and Sharon Robare. And the KCC members present were Philip Mohochi, Sangai Mohochi and his wife, Edith.
