Speaking after commissioning the classrooms, Dr Aruasa said the classrooms will offer a variety of educational programmes including the newly-implemented Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

The CBC is designed to emphasise the significance of developing skills and knowledge and also applying those competencies to real-life situations.

 "The construction of the classrooms will provide a conducive environment for children to be able to learn effectively and I call upon corporates to come on board and partner with MTRH in the realization of the Hospital's vision and mission," said Dr  Aruasa. 

Dr Aruasa lauded the project for the great achievement and the impact it would create in the children's lives.

"MTRH is the only public Hospital in Kenya with classes for children. Children's education is an important value to be instilled since it will help them in the future," he added. 

The MTRH CEO  also commissioned an extension within the Mental Health Unit for a paediatric section able to accommodate four children with an additional consultation room and a new senior consulting staff changing rooms at the Majaliwa Theatre serving capacity of 16 consultants.

He also commissioned the hospital's solar lighting project at Nyayo wards, Warehouse carpark, Coolstream restaurant and MTRH farewell home in a bid to improve the overall hospital lighting and security.
