The school principal expressed his gratitude for the gift of the computer lab which he described as a modest venture that they promised to make good use of. He discussed with the students the importance of learning computer skills which he said will be able to make them qualified for many careers and compete favorably in the already congested job market. Following the Principal’s speech, a handful of students explained the importance of computers in their lives and how special this new computer lab is for their school students.
CoKF Director, Mr. Kenneth Okoth, on his part gave the students an inspirational talk on
pursuing their dreams and using his personal life experience to demonstrate the essence of
quality education and dreaming big. ‘Proper application of computer skills is a way to boost

interests,’ he explained.
The ceremony was concluded by the official opening of the new technological space. Everyone
was able to get a glimpse of the new computer lab experience with a few students, teachers, and
the Principal testing their skills on the machines. A total of nine computers along with a printer,
scanner and projector! This newly installed computer lab will serve over 200 students and
hopefully impact their future career paths and technological skills.

School as they look towards all the possibilities that now lay before them because of these new
