Celebrating a Female Plant Mechanic-Doreen


Doreen is the first lady to complete plant mechanic course from Sensei Institute. She had passion and energy to undertake the course. Plant mechanic course is normally associated with men. She broke the belief by enrolling after training as a driver.

Back at home in Bomet County, Doreen’s family organized a ceremony to celebrate her for successfully completing the course. It was a day to be remembered as Sensei family took part in the celebrations.

Her father, Mr Rono appreciated the Institute for instilling the skills into her daughter saying: “I thank Sensei for making my daughter’s dream come true. Through the training she has received I believe she will go places”. He also encouraged Doreen to keep the spirit of hard work and all will be well.

On her part Doreen thanked the instructors who ensured she got the desired skills, “My instructors and Sensei family at large have been a pillar in ensuring I managed to complete the course despite my gender.”

She also encouraged the ladies who believe that such technical courses are meant for men, to come out and use the passion they got: “Ladies, move out of you comfort zone and compete favorably in the technical sector. Remember, what a man can do, a woman can do it better!”
