The Construction of Knowledge Societies- Elimika Project has recorded significant impact in empowering communities in five counties by equipping them with knowledge on pertinent issues as enshrined in the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.

In a report presented to the stakeholders during the validation workshop held at the University of Nairobi on March 9, 2017, it emerged that the project had achieved varied results in the five target counties of Nairobi, Kwale, Turkana, Homa Bay and Makueni.
While officially opening the workshop, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi, said that the Elimika project has emerged as an important link between the University of Nairobi and the communities where the project was implemented.
“The shifting of the learning space from university lecture theatres and seminar rooms to local communities is a significant step in bridging the divide that has traditionally characterized the relationship between the university and ordinary citizens,” he said.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research, Production and Extension, Prof. Lucy Irungu, commended the Elimika team for succeeding in identifying the research gaps which will form a basis for further research.
