On 27th July 2017, Hotpoint Appliances CSR team visited
KCITI based in Eastleigh-Nairobi where they donated spare parts for consumer
electronics to be used by the students in their practical lessons.
KCITI was founded in mid-1980 by the
late Mr. Berkeley Hackett after many years of missionary work in Kenya with the
key objective of offering quality education to the less fortunate.
The institution offers information
technology, electrical and electronics, automotive engineering, business
courses, secretarial studies, office management and theology courses at
affordable rates to the economically disadvantaged but deserving youth.
The institution currently has over 300
students in the various faculties.
Hotpoint has in the past engaged in
other CSR initiatives under the education pillar that included sponsoring needy
students through secondary school education, construction of school dining hall,
provision of learning materials, lunch feeding program for students among other
Mr. Shailesh Kanani, Managing Director
Hotpoint Appliance urged the institution’s management to put more efforts on
imparting knowledge on technical skills together with ICT as it plays a pivotal
role in reducing unemployment rates in the country.
