Even after attaining good results in 2012 KCPE, some pupils did not make it to secondary school as their parents/guardians could not afford to raise their school and some of them were lucky to receive sponsorship from the Equity bank of Kenya. Those who received the sponsorship were very happy but those who didn’t felt very discourage despite their efforts. However we try to encourage them and inspire them by showing them that this is not end of living as they have other opportunities and by grace they can still get an opportunity to pursue their studies. We encourage them to join local polytechnics which are not very expensive and they can help raise their school fees through income generating activities like rabbits and poultry keeping. Recently pupils have been taken through training on waste management and specifically on recycling some waste materials to make other valuable items e.g. they have been trained on use of waste papers to make necklaces, rings and bangles. This will not only help them to earn incomes but will also help them make use of leisure time as well preparing them to be responsible of clean environment. Some girls from the school have also received sanitary towels and 2 students received school uniforms. Thank you for the continued support.
