The celebration of Major Mumali’s graduation in 2016 has its origins in the desires of Booth College to advance education opportunities to all.
Major Fredrick Mumali from the Shigomere Division received his Diploma of Christian Studies at the Kenya West Territorial gathering for harvest on 30 October 2016. His achievement was acknowledged by Colonel Stephen Chepkurui, Chief Secretary, of the Kenya West Territory. It was undoubtedly a proud moment for Major Mumali as this was the result of years of hard work and perseverance.
Major Mumali’s achievement is an encouragement to all, especially to the many at Booth College who endeavour to make education truly boundless and accessible to all. Nearly a decade ago Booth College started discussions to administer scholarships for officers from Grant Aid Territories (GAT) recognising the financial challenges of pursuing higher education could be cost prohibitive. The scholarship would cover course fees, learning resources and costs associated with providing the resources. The initiative saw two officers from Kenya (still one territory at that time) be awarded the inaugural scholarship in late 2007.
Major Mumali was one of the later recipients of the scholarship, allowing him to successfully complete an online degree studying eight foundational units covering areas of Bible, Theology and Christian Ministry.
Booth College is a college for all nations. We believe education can have a transformative effect on people's lives and we are grateful for the opportunity to walk alongside Major Fredrick Mumali during his learning journey.
Our congratulations, Major.
