President Uhuru Kenyatta at Loreto


President Uhuru Kenyatta approves the construction of a new Loreto School in Kilifi to support 500 girls.

President Uhuru addressed congregants on Saturday at the Loreto Mary Ward Centre in Karen, Nairobi County when he met Catholic Church faithful during a special mass held to celebrate 100 years of Loreto Eastern Africa Province.

Uhuru, an alumnus of Loreto Convent, Valley Road, remembered his two years as a pupil of the then mixed primary school, maintaining that the institution developed him to be a person who values hard work and respect for others.

“As a child, having spent two years in Loreto, I was eager to learn. My childhood foundation gave me the spirit of hard work, honesty, a duty to my country, respect for others and, most of all, the fear of God,” he said.

Uhuru rallied the alumnus of Loreto schools to establish an endowment fund and scholarship programme.

He contributed Sh 10 million for the initiative. He said the endowment fund helps less privileged children to access education at Loreto institutions.

“The contribution of Loreto Sisters in our nation engraved in their alumni, which include a President, bishops, scientists, leaders in government, academia, legal minds, captains of industry, entrepreneurs, sportsmen and women,” he said.

“Loreto’s training has provided immeasurably to the creative and performance arts, to politics, governance, religion and theology, environmental protection, community service, among many fields."
