KURA Board Member Mr. Henry Murwa present a dummy cheque to Dimese Sisters in aid of installation of a biogas system.
Talitha Kum children’s orphanage has today received an over three hundred thousand grant from Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) in support of installation of a biogas system to meet the energy needs of the children’s home.
The donation presented by the Board of Directors to the homes administrators is part of the Authority’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives aimed at helping the disadvantaged in the Society by equipping communities to adopt sustainable conservation.
The orphanage intends to use renewable energy through installation of a biogas and was selected amongst other proposals received by the Authority due its consistency in embracing sustainable development. This CSR project affirms the Authorities commitment to empowering communities and helping the less privileged in the society through corporate giving.
Speaking during the cheque presentation ceremony held at the KURA Headquarters Board Member Mr. Henry Murwa applauded the Dimesse Sisters based in Nyahururu Town for their service to community by managing the home that takes care of approximately one hundred vulnerable children drawn from various parts of the Country.
“We acknowledge the efforts put by the Dimesse Sisters in uplifting the less fortunate amongst us particularly the vulnerable children under their care. As an Authority we assure you of our support in ensuring that this project takes off so that the welfare of the children under your care can be uplifted, “Said Mr. Murwa.
Sister Jane Mwangi and Sister Redemptor Ikonga who represented the Dimesse Sisters thanked KURA for the support and called on the Authority and other well-wishers to partner with them in establishment of a home for the elderly in Rumuruti, Laikipia County. They observed that the elderly have been neglected for long in society and require attention.
