Kenya: Korean Ministry Donates Uniforms to Thika School

More than 300 students from Kiboko Primary School in Thika were yesterday received uniforms and stationery from the Korean Environment ministry.

The donation, contributed by ministry staff, was presented to the school by vice minister Jong Su Yoon.

Yoon asked the pupils to work hard so that they can help Kenya become as developed as Korea.

He asked the government to conserve the 'beautiful' environment saying Kenya is endowed with a lot of natural resources.

The school headteacher, Mary Mukangu, thanked the Korean government for the donation.

She said most of the students come from poor families living in the Gachagi and Madharau slums.

Mukangu asked donours to help the school build modern toilets.

The Korean International Cooperation Agency donated desks to the school in 2011.
