After-The-Bell Initiative (Outreach program)

After-the-bell initiative is an outreach programme to Kenya secondary schools that was pioneered and is being domiciled in the Department of Environmental Science and Land Resources Management (DESLRM) of South Eastern Kenyan university (SEKU), under the School of Agriculture, Environment, Water and Natural Resources (SAEWNR).
The initiative was envisioned as a comprehensive programme to advertise and publicize the courses offered in the department and the school at large. Coordinated by the department’s publicity and outreach committee, After-the-bell initiative provide academic support services through motivational talks that cover a wide range of topics that raise the aspirations to improve the academic performance among high school students.

The mission of this initiative is to advocate for a positive attitude, promote confidence and instill a positive self-esteem, with regards to academics, among highschoolers.
Additionally, the programme raises awareness of university opportunities, at all levels (Certificate, diploma, Bachelor’s degree, master degree and PhD) by reaching out to the future students where they currently are- in their secondary school, so as to bring higher education within their reach.
