The recently concluded Kisumu ASK Show was held at the Mamboleo Show Ground from 27th to 31st July 2016 and it was a great success for KWFT as the Institution got an opportunity to position itself in the great Kisumu County.
The show was officially opened by the Agriculture, Livestock & Fisheries Cabinet Secretary Hon. Willy Bett on 29th July 2016. Present also during the event was the Kisumu County Governor Jack Ranguma. KWFT was also honored to host the Senator of Kisumu County Hon Peter Anyang' Nyong'o at our stand.
The show attracted over 10,000 members of the public, with nearly 100 exhibitors from the private and government sectors who had set up stands from which members of the public would obtain valuable information corresponding to this year’s theme, ‘Enhancing technology in agriculture and industry for food security and national growth’.
The KWFT stand was outstanding with the people of Kisumu being very receptive and welcoming of KWFT’s products and services. The stand incorporated a demo farm displaying the following: Home improvement portfolio such as; nyumba smart, solar powered TV, water tank and the pureit water purifier. The Agri portfolio included a hand driven tractor, posho mill, dairy farming, poultry house, a garden with drip lines, raised fish pond and a motor bike with a water pump. The stand attracted a huge number of people who were interested to get more information on KWFT’s unique products on display.
The Institution was once again recognized for its remarkable social impact to the society, owning to the triple bottom-line approach which entails people, planet and profit. KWFT has also embraced Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in all its products and services thus having clients as the focal point that drive the Institution to endeavour to transform lives from poverty level to empowering them to achieving their goals and ambitions.
For this reason KWFT received several prestigious awards during the show which include:
