Coastweek-- Aga Khan Academy of Mombasa shone
brightly during the 2017 Agricultural Society of Kenya show.
The school, which boasts of an
avalanche of talents, won the overall Young Farmers Club
of Kenya award.
Cabinet Secretary in charge of Gender
and Youth Sillcy Kariuki was full of praise of the
school after she handed over the glittering trophy
to the school’s Young Farmer’s Club patron Henry
Nyaga flanked by two students Josette Kiarie and
Lian Maina who also exhibited at the show.
Josette was also adjudged the best
young exhibitor and selected to head to this month’s
Nairobi International Trade Fair.
Josette won after showcasing her
talent in controlling emissions into the atmosphere.
The exhibition showed how Josette
provided enough micro organisms to bring about effective
decomposition of kitchen waste.
Maina and Josette Kiarie display the trophies won by Aga Khan
Academy Mombasa during Mombasa International Show.
She has entered into partnership with
some leading beach hotels to use their kitchen waste to
decompose as fertilizer, which can be used for gardening
purposes rather than having them thrown to landfills.
Nyaga said Young Farmer’s club helps
the youth in developing leadership and empowerment.
“Our exhibition at this year’s Mombasa
International show clearly showed our students are equally
good in creativity as they are in class,” said Nyaga.
Nyaga said Aga Khan Academy Mombasa
defeated over 11 schools drawn from the entire Coast region to
bag the award.
“It was our time to shine and we did
in style,” added Nyaga.
