Ten Thousand Miles Together, Kenya and China Share Full Moon

The Confucius Institute of Moi University, with the approval of the dean invited students to join the entire global Chinese community as they commemorated this year’s mid autumn festival which was held on the 10th of September 2022.

Many students showed up for this event which began at 10 am and was held at Moi University’s Annex Campus. Some students who could not physically attend the event also participated online via zoom.

During the event, students learnt the history behind the Mid autumn festival, its importance to the Chinese community and ways in which the Chinese people celebrate the mid autumn festival. They also learnt about the different types of moon cakes and how to make them.


The students were very excited when they got a chance to make their own moon cakes. Mrs. Liu guided them on how to make simple moon cakes with red bean fillings, and they were very quick to grasp the concept.

To wrap up this amazing event, some lucky students received mid autumn festival gifts, after which they all shared snacks including some nicely made moon cakes. It was a very successful day, and we look forward to sharing more events in the future.

We are very grateful to the dean and all the teachers at the Confucius Institute of Moi University for organizing such a great event. Even though we are 10 thousand miles apart, Kenya and China still share a moon. Happy mid autumn festival!
