  • 3E Foundation to visit University of Nairobi and Jomo Kenyatta University in June 2007 - contact us for further details


The foundation is working with leaders in the local Actuarial fraternity and two of the leading Universities - University of Nairobi, Nairobi-Kenya and Jomo Kenyatta University, Nairobi Campus. The former has been offering a full Actuarial Science degree program since 2000 and the latter commenced its full program in May 2002.
The University of Nairobi is sharing its teaching resources with the Jomo Kenyatta University.

Like Ghana, the lecturers at the actuarial department of the University of Nairobi have been put in contact with their counterparts at the University of Lagos in Nigeria and University of Ghana. The Foundation plans to link the lecturers from all the centres with fellow academicians at the thriving and matured actuarial departments of the Universities in South Africa. The first of them being the University of Cape Town (UCT) in South Africa.

The student association at Nairobi University, NASA, are very pro-active with their organisation of annual conventions. The foundation is committed in facilitating the students from the University of Lagos to attend such a convention in Nairobi in the near future. In the first instance it is yet to formally link both student associations at the University of Lagos, Nigeria and NASA members.

The foundation is committed to encouraging and facilitating the creation of a formal actuarial society in the immediate to short term. At the moment a formal actuarial society does not exist.

Following our recent visit to the University of Nairobi we were delighted to receive the following communication from one of the students we met:

To Mr. Olawale,
Greetings from Kenya. I'm a third year Actuarial Science student at the University of Nairobi. I was personally honoured by your recent visit to U.O.N. and more so since I was the beneficiary of the financial reward given to me which I shared with a classmate. It was the perfect demonstration and I can assure you, a lesson that will not be long forgotten. I'm an avid reader and so naturally the money has all gone to books.
I offer you my sincere gratitude not only for the cash but for the lesson in discipline. May the 3E Foundation prosper and may you achieve all your goals.
Yours faithfully
