Brian Oketch, a third year Bachelor of Arts (Economics and Mathematics) student at Egerton University has been working at InCIP as an office assistant for quite a period of time.
It is no doubt that InCIP has inculcated good values and morals such as discipline, in students more specifically those in the Faculty of Agriculture. It has empowered most of the students to be more of job creators than job seekers in this world of gross unemployment.
“Being my first job, it is a memorable thing in my life. I started working at InCIP in February, 2013. During this 8 months period, I have learnt life lessons of sacrifice and responsibility.
At the beginning of my job, I was really excited to learn and know about my duties and responsibilities in the project. Though, at the beginning I had so many challenges, thanks to my colleagues who helped me whenever I encountered difficulty.
With their help I am now able to meet my daily activities with ease. I was taught how to handle office equipments and documents more efficiently and to communicate with people in an official way.
I am grateful that working at InCIP has given me the opportunity to develop my communication skills and self confidence. At InCIP, I met the Project Director Prof A.K Kahi, who has been a mentor, trainer and a friend.
He is friendly and kind and has passion for young people’s talent and has always offered assistance whenever needed. Working for this project has made me appreciate and develop an interest in agriculture. I consider this a great advancement and achievement”.
