Today, May 2nd 2023, THE STANDARD featured thoughts on Competence Based Curriculum of the founder of Kenyan Women in STEAM Initiative, Carolyne Lorac Nyaga.
An equipped mindset always has a story to tell.
To me this is not just a piece of work to throw to the media but my thoughts on Education and a huge toss to the wisdomic character of my late father, Mr Peter Nyaga Nthiga, a fulltime press journalist, a passionate writer and the former provincial information officer, Embu County (2010-2018).
