Community Based Attachment: Stephen Mukoro’s Classroom Experience

Community Based Attachment is arguably Strathmore University’s best initiatives for the holistic development of a student: The experience gained and the lessons learnt cannot be underestimated. For Stephen Mokoro, a second year Bachelor of Business Information Technology student who preferred teaching at Isinya Secondary School in Kajiado County, it was a whole new and inspiring experience.


“I have really learnt a lot thanks to the Strathmore Community Based Attachment initiative. My interaction with the students and teachers has really inspired me. I now appreciate the diverse nature of a community in terms of personality, background and the social lifestyle. I passionately shared the challenges faced by the students and teachers in producing good results. The whole experience gave me a reason to appreciate my neighbor as a special gift from God and to share in their pain to bring the best in them. I feel challenged and inspired to ever live giving back to the community wholeheartedly”, a grateful Stephen shared.


According to Stephen, students should not underrate the benefits of the attachment. Community Based Attachments in addition to the wholesome development of an individual prepares one in advance to face societal responsibilities. “We as students should take this initiative positively for our own benefit” said Stephen.


Given the challenges realized Isinya Secondary School students face, such as inadequate classrooms, lack of a library and laboratories, inadequate course books, shortage of revision materials, unreliable water sources among other challenges; Stephen intends to roll out a project dubbed Make the Difference, to support upcoming public primary and secondary schools in disadvantaged areas especially with reading materials, inspiring the students to improve in their academic performance reaching greater heights in life.


He welcomes any partnership or contribution of any kind in support of this project. Interested people can contact him on stephenmokoro@gmail.com


We wish Stephen the very best in his endeavors.
