A sculpture has been stationed at the entrance of the Old NACECE building for years. Looking at it keenly, an idea of its representation struck my mind. I realized the sculpture and a relating meaning to the mission and vision of the Institute.
The sculpture portrays an image of a man and a woman uniting strongly to protect a child. They seem to be a couple bonded by strong love to protect their child. They seem very united and determined to secure the child’s future and make a better tomorrow for him. They are responsible for the welfare of the child. The future of the child depends of their effort to develop and someone out of nobody in the child’s life. The image shows that the parents take pride in protecting the child and making him a better man out of him.
In relation to the Institution the man and woman represents KICD whereby KICD plays a great role like that of a parent.
KICD is a centre for excellence in the transformation and globally competitive curricula.It aims to provide quality curriculum and curriculum support materials responsive to the need of the society which here is the betterment of tomorrow’s future of a Kenyan child.
The strong unity of the man and the woman represents some of the Institute’s core values for instance KICD encourages teamwork and thus all the employees adapt to the move to produce excellent output. KICD is accountable to Kenyan child’s future.
The institution puts much effort in ensuring that Kenya produce the best citizens by protecting the child’s future through constant developing the school’s curriculum and supporting the education for all the children. KICD is like a mother and father to Kenyan child.
