The Aga Khan University alumni community is made up of graduates from our campuses in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
alumni hold key positions in nursing education, policy and practice
across East Africa. They play key leadership roles in rural and urban
communities, and are recognised by national and international agencies
for making a difference to the communities they live with and serve.
Here are some of their stories.
George Agot Nyadimo. He enrolled at AKU for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) in 2007. In 2008 George was posted to Pumwani Maternity in the position of lecturer (nursing and midwifery).
Maama Maria. In 2006, she enrolled in the BScN programme at AKU, a move she describes as transformative and empowering, as it gave her, among other things, the confidence to move her clinic from a single room to the large facility that she works in and heads today.
Loyce Kihungi. Learning at Aga Khan University, improved my knowledge, changed my attitude and practice, and transformed my personality. I was promoted to head the Accident and Emergency department before completion of my course. I became completely reliable in my job and matured to run a department of about fifty staff with minimal supervision.
