Two Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa students win gold level President’s Award – Kenya

Coastweek (December 23, 2015) – Two students of the Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa, Sumera Yego and Magdalena Gakuo, are the first Kenyans to achieve the gold level President’s Award-Kenya (PA-K) via the newly introduced online documentation platform.

The President’s Award is a self development programme delivering life skills and ethical values to young people aged 14 to 25, with the aim of building a better society.
