The end of the year 2013 is coming closer and there can never be a better time to say Thank you to all our donors, friends adn well wishers. The children begin their end of year promotional exams in a week or two and we are hopeful that they will all advance with good grades. It has been a challenging second half of the year but we somehow muddle through, despite the current challenges. I am glad to inform you that we are still pushing on.
Alex and Prossy are already back from school after seating their Primary leaving examinsations. It was by Gods grace that they managed to seat for the examinations because we still owe the school some balances. I am glad the school administration allowed them to seat without clearing the full amounts. We are hopeful that we will clear the balances and also very hopeful that the two will pass their examinations and progress to secondary school. James and Krishna are expcted to pass and progress to primary Seven next year implying that we will have another set seating the final Primary Leaving Examinsations in 2014. Jane and Elizabeth are expcted to join Senior Four and they will be seating the Ordinary Level Certificate of Education come 2014. They will most likely branch off for a course. Elijah will be seating for the Advanced level Certificate of Education at the end of 2014 and if he excels, he should be able to joing University or College thereafter. Hanifa has so far gone one year into teacher training and we are hopeful that she too will be completeing her grade three certificate in Primary Teaching and hopefully be taken on by the government as a grade three teacher. The rest of the children in the lower classes are expected to perform well in their promotional examinations and advance to the respective next classes. We have managed to achieve this with your support and we pray that you continue supporting the project.
The challenges are still on and they sure make our work interesting. i wonder what life would be like without challenges or things to worry about - boring i guess. We have identified two more girls that we will be extending help to next year. Other than our current outstanding bills, every child expects a new dress and a new pair of shoes for Christmas. The Christmas meal at the house is usually a heavy one with plenty of rice, beef and a bottle of soda (things the children rarely consume). We also use the big Chrsitmas shopping and Xmas meal as a motivator/reward for good academic performance and good discipline throughout the year. Our 2013 Christmas plans require a very big boost from you our donors, supporters, friends and well sishers given the current state of affairs. We will certainly do very well with your support. Kindly keep the support coming. The school reports will be posted as they come through.
Merry Xmas and Happy New Year 2014.
