The Architectural Association of Kenya (AAK) in July 2018 organized a CSR Run to raise funds which would go to helping needy university students through the AAK Bursary and supporting Anwa Junior School.
Triad Staff participated on a corporate sponsorship ticket in the event held at the Nairobi Arboretum Private Grounds on 14th July 2018 at 9a.m. The 5 and 8 kilometers run was graced by the Nairobi Women representative in the Kenyan Parliament Hon. Esther Passaris and other senior officials in the association.
Triad acknowledges that not all are on the same level in life. It is therefore a responsibility of everyone to consolidate their skills, resources and time to touch the lives that are not favored to certain exposures. At Triad, we believe that the world should be a good place for all and therefore, everyone’s input is needed to ameliorate the lives of all who surround us. A run today by the able and the willing will enable the unable to run tomorrow.
The Architectural Association of Kenya (AAK) CSR kitty was established to raise funds for supporting needy University students pursuing a course in the Built Environment who are unable to fully finance their school fees. Some of the raised funds will also go towards supporting a local school in the urban slum community.
Started by a group of mothers, Anwa Junior School is located in Kibera Slums in Nairobi, Kenya. It was built to supplement the limited public elementary schools within Kibera and as of now serves about 400 children from poor families within the slum. It has shaped the character of children, instilled discipline and transformed the lives of many to a level of attracting public attention.
The school has since benefited from many financial and architectural support from professionals and other well-wishers. Its building is now a model of green architecture, a reference of public enlightenment and a case study of community participation in construction.
