The first project that the two institutions delivered together was construction of General Kago funeral home which continues to benefit Thika Level 5 hospital and MKU medical School.

Construction of the drainage system will enhance the public health of the locality and minimize emerging and spread of water borne diseases such as Cholera. The well-constructed underground drainage system will create a more conducive environment for the business to thrive well.
