School clubs can be life changing to our children

August 30, 2022

Clubs are meant to equip learners with skills to help them in future. Being an organization of people with a common purpose or interest, who meet regularly and take part in shared activities.

Clubs should be able to equip students and pupils with the necessary skills to help them in future. In Kenya the Ethics and Anti- corruption Commission EACC has launched an integrity club at Ndane Primary school in Taita Taveta County.

The aim of this club is to prevent corruption through public education and sensitizing learners on matters concerning anti- corruption, ethics and integrity.

Speaking during the launch, EACC Commissioner Rose Mghoi encouraged leaners to identify themselves with morally upright people and shun those of questionable behaviour even if they are student leaders.

She emphasised that character counts and informed learners that the traits that they acquire while in school will determine the extent to which they will achieve their goals in future.

She pointed out that the war against corruption requires the collective efforts of all sectors, leaders, public officers, and the general public, including students. “The youth, as we know, are creative, talented, energetic and agile and can utilize their abilities to drive positive societal change,” she added.

In addition, clubs can be able to reduce unemployment in the near future. Example clubs like agricultural clubs, film and drama, foreign language clubs and business oriented clubs can equip skills to students and pupils which they can use in future to earn a living.

The government, teachers, parents and concerned stakeholders can help to support children in joining clubs in their schools. With this initiative, the learners will be able to interact with other people from their societies thus enabling peace in the future.
