National Bank of Kenya became the first financial institution to partner Soya this year when they announced a Shs one million sponsorship.
The sponsorship was confirmed at a Press Conference by Isaih Mworia, the bank’s executive director – Finance.
Speaking at the function, SOYA founder and chairman, Paul Tergat said:
I would like to thank the National Bank of Kenya for their sponsorship support announcement for the awards.
National Bank becomes the first Bank and financial institution to become a co-sponsor for this awards and I truly feel proud of them. The Bank has demonstrated through its various support programmes for sports this year that it cares about our youth and their contribution to our national development.
We have already begun to witness the fruits of NBK’s investment in the junior athletics team that represented the country recently in Italy and returned with splendid results.
SOYA provides the crowning moment for NBK’s investment and I thank you for not declining my request for support to host this gala alongside our title sponsor and partner for long, Safaricom Ltd.
