He added, ” If there is a better way to give back to the society is by ensuring that the children are getting better education and support them to complete their studies. I want to encourage parents, teachers and every person out there to ensure that they give full support to their children,” he said.
Koech said in the near future he is focusing on the special unit programs and also mentoring special talents.
School head teacher called upon other alumni to support their former to cushion institutions from low performance due to scarce education resources.
