The Standard News reported in an article titled, “Kenya gets boost as education plan recognised at global fete” that Kenya garnered global attention for “pioneering Character and Creativity Initiative (CCI)” which according to the Standard, “was cited as the right approach to education that produces all-rounded individuals and described as an idea whose time has come,” during the recent Global Peace Convention held in Kuala Lumpur from December 5-8.

During the Global Summit for Character and Creativity hosted by the University of Malaya, the oldest university in Malaysia, gathered international educators and students from all corners of the world, from the Americas, Africa, and East and South East Asia.

The Standard quotes Dr. Manu Chandaria, CEO of ComCraft Group and senior adviser of Global Peace Foundation Kenya as describing CCI as “yet another fitting Kenyan export to the world after the M-Pesa Money transfer wizardry.”

Vice Chansellor of the African Nazarene University Professor Leah Marangu, and chair of the CCI board in Kenya, who was recognized at the close of the conference for her work with CCI with a Global Peace Award, told the Standard, “Top schools in Kenya today are those that have adopted character and creativity as their guiding principles by re-inventing the education system and harnessing the hidden qualities in their teachers, students and even parents.”
