Inclusion of EAC Week in Kenyan Universities Calender
The East African Community is one of the fastest growing regional
integration block. With a population of more than 136 million there are
numerous opportunities accruing as a result of Integration.
Students can exploit opportunities in the following areas:
3. Trade and investment
5. Intercultural exchange
It is imperative for University administrations to embed the EAC
integration in their curriculum and extra curriculum activities.
To begin with, this is a petition to all Universities to include the EAC
Week in the respective institution's annual calenders. The EAC Week will
create a platform for students, the University administration, the
senates and policy makers to increase their awareness, knowledge and
understanding of the opportunities presented by the EAC integration and
how they can tap into the benefits.
