President Uhuru Kenyatta’s daughter Ngina Kenyatta was one of the few people who had the privilege of holding discussions with Barack Obama.

Ngina held a closed-door meeting with the former US President after his arrival in Nairobi on Sunday. Ngina, who is the director of the Kenyatta Trust, briefed Obama on the projects carried out by the NGO.

The meeting was also attended by President Uhuru, who is the NGO’s patron, and other senior board members.


The Kenyatta Trust is a charity organization that sponsors brilliant but disadvantaged students into high school and until completion of their first degree.

Students are considered for sponsorship based on their KCPE results, extracurricular activities, and community service.

It was established on August 4, 2010, with a mission to transform the lives of young men and women in Kenya as well as to economically empower the communities from which they originate.

It engages in programs such as scholarship, mentorship, counseling, economic empowerment, and internships.
