DOT Kenya mourns the passing of Anthony Kimani, a DOT Intern who was newly hired to deliver the ReachUp! program.
It is with shock and deep sorrow that we announce the passing of DOT Kenya Intern Anthony Kimani. Anthony was a newly recruited Intern who completed training last week at St. Christophers' in Karen, Nairobi, and had been set to start facilitating the ReachUp! program in January 2012. Anthony passed away after a short illness.
Many who were with Anthony at the training remember him as a very good-hearted person who was always willing to go out of his way to help others. During the training Anthony was put in charge of the computer lab and would always ensure everything was in order and safely kept.
The DOT Kenya team is quite close, and the passing of a friend and coworker brings great sadness. Rita Muthoni, the resident staff during the Intern training in which Anthony participated, remembers Anthony as "outgoing, focused, friendly and always willing to take up any duties assigned to him."
Our hearts go out to Anthony's family during this difficult time.
