The Outspan Hospital helped facilitate approximately 270 boys in Nyeri County undergo the circumcision rites of passage. The exercise which took place between the 13th to 23rd of November 2017 was a collaborative effort between The Outspan Hospital with the PCEA Nyamachaki and PCEA Ruringu parishes. During the initiates' graduation ceremony at Nyeri Primary, the Executive Director, Outspan Hospital - Dr. G.M. Kiruhi, urged the parents and guardians to treat the initiates as men, give them responsibilities and also continuously encourage them. The Outspan Hospital and Outspan Medical College congratulates the participants on their transition into young men.
