Since joining MWAKA, its been a great journey of self improvement in the sphere of construction. I have come to acquire the kind of skills one needs to not only build but also supervise construction work
I have come to be known in my sphere as the all round fundi because of my ability to handle every bit of construction with considerable prowess. This is largely due to MWAKA's guidance and mentorship.
MWAKA has become core to my criteria of choosing workmen. This is because people that are MWAKA members tend to be refined, professional and work under minimal supervision always.
