Meeting of the Wageningen Alumni Network Kenya, Nairobi, Friday 29 January 2016

University Fund Wageningen organises several alumni events all over the world to stay in touch with alumni and to give alumni the chance to engage with each other. On Friday January 29th an informal event by the Wageningen Alumni Network Kenya was organised in Nairobi.

Dr. Sammy Letema, Dr. Christine Majale and Dr. Leah Oyake-Ombis, in collaboration with University Fund Wageningen, have succesfully organised an alumni meeting of the Wageningen Alumni Network in Kenya on Friday January 29th, 2016.

The meeting was a great success, being attended by 20 alumni. The meeting was opened with a prayer by Dr. Maren Radeny. After this the alumnni present introduced themselves. This was a great way for Wageningen Alumni to get to know one another and to share their Wageningen University experiences.

The possibility for setting up an Official Alumni Chapter was extensively discussed after this and concrete plans were made for the future development of the Chapter. Some practical steps towards setting up a Wageningen Alumni Chapter that were undertaken include suggesting members for an executive and a supervisory board, and by reaching out to other alumni in the area to strengthen the network.
