Tell us the story behind your photo:
In 2019, I attended a community service in Mashuuru, Kajiado County in Kenya. I was not a participant of the award, but a part of another team; Afribuk Society that had partnered with President's Award-Kenya, Egerton University. The team was building a school Dukers Embolioi Learning Center in order to shorten the distance young children had to work to the government schools. It was then that I resolved to join the award. I waited for about 7 months to get the registration fee an then started my award journey and I haven't regretted my choice since then.The photo I am going to share is in the same place three years later. Now that I am a part of the award, I joined my peers to do my residential project at the Learning Center. In the photo, I am seen hammering a roofing structure.
