Nyeri Office Launch event

At the beginning of 2018 we launched the grand opening of our Central Kenya region office in Nyeri, on the 22nd of January. This event was graced by major stakeholders in the central region with attendance by the Federal Australian Senator Lucy Gichuhi. The theme of this event was to Unlock Potential through Higher Education and International exposure.

Our Director, Helen Meria spoke about how she got into the higher education business. She highlighted that Options was not an idea that was born out of a business plan, but out of necessity. Helen disclosed that she saw a need and gap when most of her friends and family wished they would have easy access to the option of their children pursuing higher education abroad but had limited knowledge about how to begin to make those dreams possible. Which resulted in her taking up the challenge to make it easier for those dreams to be realized for people close to her.

We had the honor of having our Kenyan born and bred Australian Federal Senator Lucy Gichuhi as the special guest and keynote speaker. Senator Lucy, who is originally from Nyeri, spoke about demystifying the idea of studying abroad and encouraged the parents and other stakeholders present to look at international exposure as a great tool to fulfil dreams and diversify opportunities for their children.

And finally, a panel discussion was held whereby the audience asked questions that were answered by the Honorable Lucy, Helen and a young professional in Australia who has been an international student.
