Riara Chapter officially began on February 2nd 2019, after the founders attended the 18th Session of the Kenya Model United Nations Conference. The Riara Chapter was spearheaded by six students from the university, which has now grown into a community with a larger number of members today.
We were privileged to emerge as the winners of the Warm-Up Challenge that took place in 2019, which was our first attempt and the first ever activity we attended. Currently, we have been able to attend a number of mock debates that took place in 2019, which has enabled us to expand our connections and relations with members from other chapters.
The Riara Chapter seeks to sensitize fellow students within and without the university on the United Nations through the KMUN platform. Within the University, the club seeks to reach out to students who engage in club activities with the goal of emerging better equipped and aware of the goings-on of the UN, This will enable them to actively participate in relevant activities nationally and articulate their ideas to help form a better nation and international system at large. Without the university, KMUN-Riara connects with other clubs, learning and sharpening each other. Through community service as well, the club is able to reach out to the community and give back to society, in the spirit of unity.
We have our regular chapter meetings every Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in one of the rooms located in the university’s learning block.
