THEME: REBUILD BETTER TOGETHER
The United Nations International Day of Cooperatives is celebrated every year on the first Saturday of July, in Kenya it is known as Ushirika Day. Over the years, CHUNA Sacco has religiously participated in its celebrations, and was awarded, the best in savings management-employer based Sacco under tier 3 category, in 2019 by the National council for ushirika day celebrations.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there will be no outdoor celebrations of Ushirika Day in Kenya but will be done virtually following the theme for the day, “REBUILD BETTER TOGETHER”. Cooperatives around the world will show case around the world how they are mitigating the Covid-19 pandemic with solidarity and resilience. It will be a day to show how a human centered business model sustained by the values of self-help and solidarity together with the ethical values of self-responsibility and concern for community can reduce inequality and create shared prosperity and respond to the immediate impacts of covid-19.
In view of this year's Ushirika Day theme, we are inviting our members to focus on rebuilding better and contribute to impacting our economy positively
