2012 Recap

The Kisa project launched in spring of 2010 with 23 girls. We had high hopes for this first class of Kisa scholars, hopes of the places they would go and the great things they would do after completing secondary school. In February, these Kisa scholars completed the Kisa program and graduated from secondary school! After graduation these Kisa graduates were asked to educate other young women in their communities, a unique opportunity to extend what they learned in the Kisa program.

And now our Kisa graduates are moving onto great careers. Chummy is working on her bachelor degree in economics and finance, she hopes to be an economist. Another Kisa graduate, Dorcas, has been accepted to the University of Dodoma to study engineering and computer science. 17 of our 23 original Kisa scholars plan to attend University now that they have graduated from secondary school! This is an extraordinary statistic in a country where 95% of girls don't finish secondary school. 

We are so proud of our Kisa graduates. And we are so excited to see what opportunities our next class of Kisa scholars will experience as they graduate secondary school this winter and begin to pursue further education and careers. We know that there are many amazing things in store for the futures of these bright, dedicated, and ambitious young women. We can't wait to see what 2013 will bring for our Kisa graduates!!
