Graduating class Ruben Centre public relations officer awarding certificates It was pomp and colour during the graduation of the Nairobits media lab students that was held on the 14th of June 2013 at South B go-downs. Sixty five students graduated fifteen of whom are from Ruben Centre.

Excitement was marked all over their faces as this was the highlight of their rigorous training, time and effort spent during the period of study. The event was graced by Langata Member of Parliament Mr. Ken Okoth who urged the students to be bold in the job market and to make informed choices saying, “Life is a choice and a choice of attitude.” The message for the graduands from almost all the speakers was for them to make a positive change in the society.

Media lab is the final level of the Information Communication Technology ICT course offered by Nairobits. The students underwent the four levels of training i.e.  starting from introduction to computers up to specialization in ICT web design and development

This achievement would not have been possible without the help – both logistical and financial -of Nairobits and Terre des Hommes respectively who have been partnering with us to achieve our vision of ensuring quality education and empowered Mukuru community.
