The graduate program has given me the unique and rare opportunity to not only be a part of but also actively manage a wide range of projects end to end. In the Two and a half years, I have managed the installation of the Two Rivers Rooftop Solar Plant. At 1.28 MW, the Two Rivers Solar Project, the largest rooftop solar project in East Africa has the capacity to power 800 homes per year. I have managed the Two Rivers Water and Waste water treatment project. At a capacity of 2 million liters per day, the water plant produces enough water for 40,000 people per day. In line with the conserving the environment, the waste water is recycled and used for irrigation. I have also been entrusted with the Two Rivers Mall Vertical Transport system comprising of the latest technology in lifts, escalators and Auto walks. These projects have not only been challenging but also very exciting, especially seeing the different components of the projects coming together successfully.
The Graduate Program is a very engaging and rewarding experience. It presents you with the opportunity at a young age to be a part of big projects that are transforming the face of Africa. The program makes you a part of the great, brilliant team that are behind the projects. The program stretches one to go beyond the graduate degree and understand different aspects of business; Law, Finance, Human resource, entrepreneurship and management effectively producing the next business leaders in the continent.
The future, I say, only gets better, more exciting, bigger mega projects and I look forward to be being a part of these projects and head a business unit one day.
