Academic Advancement

By a male, under 16 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of ACADEMIC ADVANCEMENT My name is Justus Wanyama. I am aged 10 and in Ingavira Precious Academy. I joined this school in 2009. I have had a bit of struggle in my life with a number of problems that affected me. I think i really needed a school that had a provision for slow-learners where teachers can have time to closely attend to such people like myself. I found out that at Ingavila precious Academy teachers have a mentality to bend low to children with special needs and address any specific concerns that impede on their progress. My weaknesses through close contact by my teachers and my openness and freeness to some teachers have been expossed hence they help me very well. Read more.

A Responsible Leader

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of A RESPONSIBLE LEADER Some three months ago not so long some lectures form the university of Canada visited our area with some professors from Nigeria they were really kind hearted and they and they really had a message to pass to the people only to realize that someone was also giving bad information about them. They came with different prospects, they built permanent toilets bathrooms and when they had just started building a library for the local youths around some people came in with different idea but all this was thrown away. After everything had been completed we needed someone responsible to come in and in volunteer taking care of everything. That has been a problem up to date no one has been willing to do that and so we are really crying to the organization out there to come in and do something about it. Read more.
