The Inter Region Economic Network (IREN) held The 9th IREN Bukura Cultural Day on 28th December 2013 at the Bukura Primary School Sports Ground. Launched in 2005 December, the annual event which aims at facilitating positive exposure for young people in Western Kenya to broaden their mission and vision in life has brought together an estimated 5,000 participants aged between 4 to 90 years.

This year’s event focussed on harnessing the power of IT to do business by unveiling an IT School of Business at ACK Diocese of Butere's AICMAR complex; observing public health by launching an anti-jigger campaign using latest medicine; and featuring cultural dances and sports.
