Congratulations Graduates!

We are proud and excited that this is the fourth year of the Youth Scholarship & Leadership Program in Kenya.

This year GEF is sponsoring 77 secondary students; 25 of these young girls and boys are in their senior year of high school. This senior class is the first to have benefited from both GEF scholarships and the leadership program for all four years of high school. From these programs we have seen remarkable growth with our students - in their performance in school as well as in their transition out of high school. The 19 scholars who sat for their national exams last year did very well. Over 60% of the graduates score well enough to qualify for university and three students qualified for government subsidies for university. This is a significant accomplishment given that these students come from an area where only 5% of all students qualify for university each year. 

Congratulations GEF Scholars and Thank You to our supporters!
