YOUNG MUSLIM ASSOCIATION & GARISSA MUSLIM CHILDREN'S HOME

GMCH OLD BOYS ASSOCIATION

The above refers to a body formed that aims at uniting the boys who passed through the centre. In the long history of the centre’s 40 years, many boys have gone through it. Their number is slightly above 1200. These boys who left the centre at different levels of education had a common experience that of passing through the centre and benefiting from its services. The average number of years a child spent in the centre is 10 years. Others have stayed for14 years which is the period of nursery to secondary and beyond.


The old boys are now scattered all over Kenya and beyond. They are also in different professions and occupations.


The old boys started effort at uniting again in their adult life. They also wanted to exploit their economic, professional and human capital resource in making effort at making contributions to the centre’s well being.


They held their first conference in 1999 and formed the association. However, the association became dormant and efforts restarted to revive it in 2008, leading to the 2nd conference held at the GMCH in December 2008. This conference was successful and was graced by the Director Sheikh Moti-ur-Rasool, Secretary General Abdulahmid Slatch and Hon. Dualle Assistant minister and MP Dujis.


In this meeting, the old boys resorted to revive the association and partner with YMA in the development of the centre. They also participated in the 40th anniversary celebrations and the YMA Waqf project. It is worth mentioning that in the subsequent fundraising held in August 2009 for the Waqf, the old boys individually and collectively contributed about Ksh 1 million to the fund.


It is also noteworthy that the old boys have played active role in the management of the centre over the years. Currently, the manager, warden, works supervisor and a few others are part of the centre staff. At the national level the vice chairman DR. I.M Ali and Eng. Abdulrashid who is the assistant secretary general are both old boys of the centre.
