AMWIK Presents the Zumba Experience


The Association of Media Women in Kenya (AMWIK) will hold a Zumba fundraiser event on Saturday November 15, 2014 at the Nyayo National Stadium, Handball Gymnasium, starting from 9:00am to 1:00pm.

The Zumba experience is a platform for raising funds for AMWIK scholarship fund kitty that seeks to advance its members Journalism and Communication careers.

AMWIK started the scholarship fund in 2003 in response to a change in the employment policy that required that anyone practicing journalism and communication as a whole have at least a university degree. The new policy affected many media and communication practitioners, and particularly women.

AMWIK goals for members of the association is to enhance the quality of life, level of professionalism and the impact of their contribution to society. Unfortunately, most of our members have for many years, not been able to achieve this goal because they fall in the category that cannot afford to pay for higher education.

Through the AMWIK Scholarship Fund, we have over the past ten years, raised Kshs.6.5 million, and supported the education of 26 women. More are on the waiting list. It is for this reason that we appeal to you, to help us raise more funds to educate more women.
