A reception was held on 8 February in Nairobi, Kenya for current Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholars and alumni. The event was hosted by Dr John Kirkland, Executive Secretary of the CSC
As well as members of the CSC community, guests included HE Mr Rob Macaire, UK High Commissioner to Kenya, and Professor Crispus Kiamba, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology (and also an alumnus), who made speeches.
A highlight of the evening was the presentation of a contribution to the CSFP endowment fund, made by Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholar Nelson Ndegwa Gichora on behalf of a group of scholars. It is hoped that Kenya will be hosting its first awards under the CSFP endowment fund from next year.
