Leading pay television provider MultiChoice Kenya is set to establish over 40 MultiChoice Resource Centres in Kenyan public secondary schools this year as it pushes with the vision that robust community development initiatives are essential for sustainable business.

The new additions will increase the number of beneficiary public secondary institutions to over 200, drawn across the country. Secondary schools in Meru, Mombasa, Nyeri, Kisii, Kakamega, Nakuru, Narok and Kisumu counties are among those set to benefit from the initiative this year.

Five secondary schools in Meru County have been earmarked to benefit from the MultiChoice Resource Centres CSR programme including: Ntakira Secondary School, Mweru Secondary, St Mary’s Ntanki, Uringu Girls Secondary, Nchuui secondary all selected in collaboration with the County education officials.

Under this initiative Kenyan schools are provided with digital satellite technology and free access to the DStv Education Bouquet, which includes seven documentary, educational and current affairs channels.
“Technology and education can blend seamlessly as illustrated in the rapid uptake of the initiative by teachers and students over the years,” said MultiChoice Kenya Corporate Communications Manager, Philip Wahome.

Some of the schools that have benefitted from MultiChoice resource centre programme reflect a diverse cross section in far-flung counties among them; Isiolo (Isiolo Girls High School), Wajir (SabunleySecondary School), Baringo (Chepnyal Girls High School), Taita Taveta (Dr Aggrey High School) and Nairobi (Precious Blood, Riruta).

According to Mr. Wahome, the DStv Education Bouquet provides a rich and varied learning resource environment that encourages exploration and brings subject matter to life. “It is both a reference source and means for teachers to explain difficult concepts in a visual manner,” he added.

The MultiChoice Resource Centre programme is implemented in partnership with the Kenyan Ministry of Education “While MultiChoice leverages its technology platform and content as a powerful learning tool, our partnership with the Ministry of Education ensures capacity building and ongoing support of teachers unlock the full potential of the resources in the classroom” says Wahome.
