Thirty KIPPRA staff participated in the marathon whose proceeds will go to Standard Chartered’s “Future makers Initiative.” The global initiative aims to tackle inequality by promoting greater economic inclusion in local markets. It supports disadvantaged young people, especially girls and people with visual impairments, to learn new skills and improve their chances of getting a job or starting their own business.
