STUDENTS GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND UNIVERSITY

Our high school students reported to their respective schools on August 27th for their third term. The students were facilitated with their school fees and other requirements they needed for the term. Our continuing university students have also resumed study at their universities. Owen Alikula and Sydney Mmbohi have started their second year studies. Silas Iningu is also a second year student and has started his second semester. Celestine Chemwor completed her year one studies. On the 28th of August she started her internship at Eldoret Racecourse Hospital to gain skills and experience in her social work and community development course. She will be expected to go back to school next year for her second and last year. All our university students were facilitated with their tuition fees, money for rent, food pocket money and fare to their schools. We are wishing them well and expecting good results. We are also glad to report that six of our eight university students have already reported to their universities, two will be reporting on September 3rd. We  facilitated them  with their requirements and they were very  much grateful  for the support and very excited  to join their respective universities. Heartfelt thanks to our CSA donors and sponsors who make education possible for these eager, talented students.

SOLAR LAMPS FOR FORM ONE STUDENTS

guardians with lights

Lydia met with the Form One parents whose children are in day schools on July seventh. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the progress of the students and to decipher how best to assist them to achieve their dreams. The parents were also given solar lamps which would enable the students to study well at night while at home. The parents were happy with the lamps since most of the students were using hurricane lamps for lighting which don't provide enough light and are also expensive in terms of the paraffin (kerosene) needed. Additionally, this type of lighting is harmful to the eyes.
