Kenya Re is proud to be embracing the essence of its core value of Good Corporate Citizenship evidenced in its innate desire to see the society and community flourish just like it does. The Niko Fiti – ability beyond disability campaign, has made this happen.
The Corporation held a colorful and joyful celebration at Villa Rosa Kempinski Hotel, Nairobi on Monday, 8th November 2021 to mark ten victorious years of provision of mobility and assistive devices to over 8,300 people with disability in over 25 counties.
The campaign brought together key stakeholders who have ‘boarded’ the Niko Fiti bus since its inception in 2011. Some of those stakeholders being, Lenana School, Nairobi Chief Principal – Mr. William Kemei, Moi Girls School – Isinya Chief Principal – Mrs. Alice Sayo, APDK CEO – Mr. Anthony Nzuki, KISE Deputy Director, Mr. Peter Ndichu and Nation Media Group Partnerships Editor, Mr. Julius Mokaya.
This year, the campaign will traverse the counties of Meru, Marsabit, Nandi, Migori (Kuria East & West) and Mombasa as it spreads joy and love in the lives of hundreds of persons with disability. The beneficiaries will receive mobility and assistive devices that will transform their lives forever.
In marking the 10-year celebrations, Kenya Re Chairman Mrs. Jenifer Karina underscored her conviction that there is an urgent need to rethink disability as an important agenda in the greater National development processes and to firmly advocate for its rightful positioning in national discourse. Disability inclusion remains a very important agenda in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Speaking during the celebrations, Kenya Re Managing Director said that “it is a momentous period for Kenya Re. We are excited that against all odds we are marking 10-years of a fruitful, profound and impactful Corporate Social Responsibility initiative that is, the Niko Fiti - Ability Beyond Disability Campaign. When we began this noble cause in 2011, we aspired it to be sustainable, have positive impact on targeted groups and overally meet its founding objectives. Looking back, we could not have done it alone without the support of you our dear partners and stakeholders. You have a huge stake in our success.”
