Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho has urged the youth to work hard until they achieve their dreams.
Speaking on Friday at the Agakhan Academy, Mombasa, Joho promised to help other institutions emulate what Agakhan is doing in developing talents.
The governor advised the students to balance academics and cocurricular activities.
“The Aga Khan Academies are changing lives. In my opinion, there cannot be a better place than here at the Aga Khan Academy Mombasa. You have led the way, and now it is for us and our institutions to emulate you. It’s a privilege to come to such a private school and enjoy such facilities. It is our responsibility, those that are in leadership, those that are running institutions, such as these, to put an environment for such an opportunity. This community program that you’re running, I can’t thank you enough," Joho said as quoted by Citizen Digital.
The ODM deputy party leader lauded how the institution has blended the traditional schooling focused on academics with talent nurturing.
He promised that the County Department of Youth, Gender, Sports and Cultural Affairs will work closely with J R Hensely and leverage on his network and expertise to develop strategic international partnerships, especially in sports and entertainment industry.
Hensely is a certified NBA/FIBA Sports Agent.
"We also visited the Agakhan Academy, Mombasa, which has successfully consolidated academics, sports and arts and also run a vibrant community outreach program as a model academic institution to be emulated in development of talent oriented academic programs," Joho tweeted.
