To launch Shukrani, Jambojet in partnership with Sarova Whitesands, flew a group of 16 women aged between 45-68 years.
The women were from Ngonde PCEA Church in Kiganjo, Nyeri County.
It was their first time flying, after they were nominated in an online competition carried out by Jambojet between October 15th and 20th October 2019.
“We take this opportunity to sincerely thank Jambojet for giving us the opportunity to fly to Mombasa. It was a golden chance for us because we had never travelled by air before,” said Mrs Teresa Matu, one of the beneficiaries.
The ladies also took a tour of Fort Jesus, thereafter, they had lunch with the Jambojet CEO at Sarova Whitesands.
The group then proceeded to the beach for games.
