Solai-based Philanthropists the Patel Family has called on locals in the area to continue embracing unity and education for all for a better society.
Speaking at Endao Solai Primary School during a donation of school bags to the over 400 pupils at the school, Perry Kansagra noted that education is key in transforming society.
The Patel Family also vowed to ensure the school is equipped with the required furniture as well as improve the infrastructure.
According to the School’s Head teacher Alfred Kenei, it was started as an Early Child Development Centre in 2004 before it was transformed to a Primary school in 2013.
While assuring the continued support of the Patel Family to the schools in the area, Kansagra stated that with great collaboration, the society can be a better place for all.
“My message to members of the community is that Rome wasn’t built in one day but through collaboration we can make Solai a better place. We also need to co-exist and ensure a peaceful society. As a family, we shall continue to play our part through Corporate Social Responsibility.
Perry Kansagra also called for the need to ensure a peaceful society in which everyone is valued no matter the background they come from.
Similar sentiments were echoed by Perry Kasangra’s son Aditya Vicran who at his youthful age encouraged the pupils at the school and the larger Solai area in Subukia Sub County to continue working hard in their studies.
“I am doing this donation because my late grandfather always showed us this is the way to go. Helping the society in whatever way we can” stated Aditya.
The event was also attended by area Chief Charles Kiragu who lauded the Patel Family for the role they have continued to play in shaping the Solai community.
While noting the many challenges that the schools in the area face, Kiragu was categorical that with such charity work, the education standards in the area will be raised to another level.
“This is a family that has stood with the people of Solai just to see a better society and we are very grateful for such gesture” said Kiragu.
For parents whose children received the donations, it is a new dawn in their life with many hoping that the Patel Family shall continue with such a gesture even in future for a better society.
