East Africa Model United Nations (EAMUN) was started in 1982. It is one of the only MUNs to hold its conference in official United Nations territory and allows students who attend to further immerse themselves into the world of the United Nations.
The slogan for EAMUN is "Building leadership for tomorrow" which is exactly what we do. MUN helps students gain self confidence, public speaking skills and a vast knowledge of current global issues all of which are attributes of the modern day leader.
Tremendous support for both the MSMUN and EAMUN programs is offered by the staff at the UN headquarters in Gigiri, Kenya. This support together with the growing popularity of both of these programs has provided the resources to continue to build up the program and maximise the experiences of all our delegates. We look forward to implementing a number of changes and improvements this year that will further enrich our MUN program and make it even more enjoyable for all those involved.
The East African Model United Nations program consists of the EAMUN conference, for students aged between 14 to 19 years, and the MSMUN conference, for students between ages 11 to 14 years. This program has grown over the past decades from a small inter-school activity into an international student conference.
Both programs have evolved over the years to become excellent platforms for students to hone a number of skills including debating and public speaking skills, journalistic talents, leadership skills as well as providing an invaluable opportunity for students to develop their self-confidence. Student involvement continues to expand to include more and more students from not just Nairobi but also from all over Kenya and other countries.
