Adam Gardener once said that it’s great not only talking about Community Service in theory but actually doing it. The President’s Award family at Dedan Kimathi University family made a soul smile at Nyeri Children Remand Home on Saturday, 28th May 2016 when the scheme paid a visit.
This was the first community service for the semester May-August and one of its kind. The participants engaged and interacted with the children. The kids were happy to have us as they showed in their presentations. They had so much energy and confidence. They also posed some good learning experiences where we as students learnt and appreciate our freedom.
Nyeri Children Remand Home is a government institution under the Children’s Department. It holds homage for children whose cases are still ongoing in Children Court to determine their fate. They also take into protection the children whose safety and welfare is threatened by the community around them. It is not a permanent place for them as after a while they are taken either to juvenile or back to their families.
It was nice being around the kids and see them smile. As you live, leave and touch a soul around you.
