KPA hands ultra-modern hall to Mazeras Girls

The Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) has handed over a Sh39 million state-of-the-art multi-purpose hall with a capacity of 1000 people to Mazeras Girls Memorial Secondary School in Samburu Sub-County, Kwale.

The commissioning of the hall by KPA Chairman Benjamin Tayari was received with jubilation by the 1200 learners of the school who used to eat and train for dramas under the scorching sun.

Five years ago, the school administration made a humble appeal to KPA for a multi-purpose hall. The authority sent a team for a need analysis before the construction commenced.

“I am thrilled to witness the realization of this magnificent development. This project which cost Sh39 million made a significant milestone in our Corporate Social Investment (CSI), reflecting our commitment to giving back to the community we serve,” said KPA Chairman Benjamin Tayari.

The project is one of the most expensive projects the authority has undertaken through CSI.

The completion of the hall according to the chairman serves as a testament to KPA’s unwavering commitment to giving back to the community and making a positive impact on the lives of the people it serves.

The multi-purpose will be used for education, extracurricular activities, workshops, community events, and celebrations.

“As we hand over this multipurpose hall to Mazeras Memorial School, we do so with the hope that it will catalyze positive change and growth. We believe that education is the key to a brighter future, and it is our privilege to support the next generation of leaders and innovators,” said Tayari.

He further revealed that the authority has been at the forefront of socio-economic development growth, aiming to achieve human and community development.

KPA through its CSI policy mainly focuses on health, education, the environment, sports, humanitarian aid and relief, and women empowerment projects.

Tayari said the CSI programs had made significant contributions to the development of over 60 infrastructures, including a dispensary clinic, school laboratories, libraries, dormitories, classrooms, a centre for rescued girls, and administration blocks administrative buildings across the country and in the neighbouring nations.

He urged the students to work hard and to strive for excellence in everything they do. “Education is the key to unlocking your full potential, and with determination and perseverance, you can achieve anything you set your mind to,” said Tayari.

The school’s Chief Principal Faith Waithaka thanked KPA for the splendid hall. She said the authority’s commitment to education has been a beacon of hope and the girls will no longer take their meals under the scorching sun.

The hall, she said will also be used for academic conferences and nurture artistic talents in the school.

On his part, area MCA Victor Nyanje called for the collaboration between schools and government agencies to augment the Constituency Development Fund in improving schools’ infrastructure.
