Reuben Kimani, CEO, Username Investment Limited, has received prestigious recognition as a Kenyan Changemaker by TUKO Business Leaders Award 2023 for his immense contribution towards Education Scholarship Programme in Kenya. This comes as a testament to the CEO’s commitment to support needy and bright students to access quality education.

Reuben was awarded alongside renown business leaders in Kenya including Darshan Chandaria of Chandaria Group, Joseph Ogutu, Safaricom Foundation, Mendi Njonjo, KCB Foundation among others.

According to TUKO, the Business Leaders Award recognizes business leaders whose initiatives and the businesses they lead, have had a notable positive impact on the lives of Kenyans. The Award is designed to honour CEOs and Business Leaders who have played a pivotal role in shaping Kenya’s social and economic landscape through their transformative projects.

“On my own accord and that of Username, we are committed to the best of our abilities to support education initiatives for those who are bright but unfortunately come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Over time, we have partnered with Affecto Foundation to support many young and bright minds who are like where I was 20 years ago,” Reuben Kimani, CEO, Username Investments said while receiving the award delivered to Username Head Office in Westlands by Julia Majale, Managing Director, TUKO Media.

“In the 2023 KCPE Examination, there were 1,406,557 candidates across the country. It is my desire and hope that all candidates will transition successfully so that they achieve their career dreams. However, the reality of the matter is that we still have a number of them who will not be privileged to proceed with their education due to lack of school fees. My appeal to everyone is that, if you are in a position to help someone especially in education, do so because, you are not only paying their school fees, you are transforming their lives in a big way. You are simply changing their destiny. It might be the difference between an unfruitful and productive life,” Reuben Kimani continued.

Reuben concluded by wishing all KCPE candidates the best as they prepare to join Form 1 in 2024. He encouraged them to use education to unlock their career dreams and in turn become valuable members of the society and solve real life challenges.

Reuben Kimani is an award-winning CEO, some of the awards he has won include; Realtor Founder of the Year, African Business Personality, Entrepreneur of the Year and JKUAT Alumni Achievement Award.
