When Veronicah Mumira left Kenya to become a nurse in Australia, she made a promise to herself that she would one day come back home and set up a college.

It was a not-so-common phenomenon given that most cases of brain drain hardly find their way back to Kenya as many opt to find residency in foreign countries and spend their prime year there.

Veronicah, however, knew deep down that he was only in Australia for a few years but the end game was Kenya, she told Alex Chamwada.

The idea behind it was to ensure that the skills and knowledge she had amassed abroad would help the people back in her home country.

"I'm a registered nurse and midwife by profession. I've worked in that industry for 17 years, so this was meant to bring all those skills back home," she explained.

It looked like a far-fetched dream, but the medic made it a point to ensure that her idea saw the light of day.

Auscare International College was opened in Nyali

She kickstarted the plan by starting a recruitment agency in Australia while still a student, one that help her find footing for a bigger business empire ahead. The explains how she recently cut the ribbon that officially opened doors to Auscare International College in Nyali, Mombasa.

According to some of the students, the mere fact that the institution has direct links to Australia gives them hope that they stand higher chances of getting employment opportunities in other countries.
