Our new dormitory!

In case you have forgotten, the dormitory at the Kakenya Center for Excellence was desperately needed. Girls were walking long distances from their homes, subject to human and animal predators. We converted empty classroom space into a makeshift dorm so the girls would not have to endure these dangers and to provide them precious time for studying. As one student reports,

My life change in the school and I improved in my education, I was walking to school for a long distance. I had came to [KCE] and I have been in boarding school. We had been taking good food and sleep well as well as learning.  At [KCE] we had been given uniform, school shoes, [athletic apparel,] and school materials.

Attached you will find two articles describing the dorm and the excitement of the girls. We hope you will share in their excitement.

A huge thank you to all our donors and friends who supported this grand effort!
