PParticipants of this year’s AgriTech Challenge, organised by the Kosmos Innovation Centre, have donated garbage bins to the Army Recruit Training School, as part of efforts to building a healthy and clean environment.
January of this year, the “Agri-Techies” attended expert training in leadership
and discipline at the Army School in Shai Hills and, after the event, donated
the bins to show their appreciation.
participants were thankful for the warm welcome they each received and for the
confidence the instructors had in them, pushing them to achieve things they
thought were impossible.
participants acknowledged that although the school was very clean, they could
hardly see any bins around and therefore decided to come together and buy
additional bins for the school in case they were needed in the future.

training learnt in the army can be transferred to growing resilience in
entrepreneurs. This would not have been possible if we had not been part of the
Kosmos Innovation Centre.”
