It has been quiet on the website for a long time. Fortunately, education has partly started again in Kenya and new students have also been included in the program.
New in our program is Monicah W. Monicah passed the high school final exam in February 2020. She started her study Community Development and Environment in November. We immediately bought a computer for her because the study is mainly online at the moment.
We have also included Patrick in our program. Due to a lack of money, he was unable to continue high school after the first year. Thanks to Kids to School, he will be able to go to 2nd class in early 2021.
Pauline is also new in our program. Pauline graduated from high school in February 2020. She will start her Bachelor of Commerce studies at Kenyatta University.April 2020
It’s a strange time and schools around the world are closed. That also means that the kids who are sponsored by Kids to School are mostly sitting at home now. A few try to finish their studies and therefore continued to live in the city where he/she studies. We all hope this time doesn’t last too long.
