A Kenyan online trading company, 51 Capital has called upon parents to save money to cater for their kids’ education in the future.
The company Chief Executive Officer(CEO), Joe Kariuki said saving for education is an important investment to enable children to realise their career aspirations in the 21st-century job market.
“Secondary school is not enough, the jobs that they used to get when they leave secondary school, by the time they are finished with high school, a lot of (those jobs) don’t exist,” he argued.
Kariuki further stressed the need for parents to be involved in their children’s school life.
“Do you pay attention to what your child is doing in school? Do you ask them about their homework? Do you ensure that it is done?” he questioned.
At the same time, the CEO urged firms to be on the Frontline on empowering women.
