Joy Kakenya Barta has finished her 12 week industrial attachment at Rift Valley Water and Services Board. She learned a lot while there from public relations and communications, to research and writing skills. She writes, “[the work] enabled me to gain perspective on the faculties and skills-some of which aren’t thought in school–that need to be developed and cultivated by an individual so as to effectively utilize and apply one’s constituent knowledge in the work place.”
