It has been a very busy time on the project in Kenya with generous donations to the GVI Charitable Trust helping the projects to continue growing with amazing results.
At Precious Vision School recent donations funded text books for students in the new standard 7, a very simple but hugely beneficial development. Project manager Louise Elard explains:
‘This will allow the teacher to deliver a complete lesson and focus on the content, rather than waste precious time writing up the lesson in the form of explanations, exercises to copy, etc, from the blackboard.
Next academic year - January through December 2012 - will be a crucial year for current Standard 6, soon to be Standard 7. They will be one standard away from sitting their KCPE (Kenya Certificate of Primary Education) in December 2013. They will need to pass this exam to qualify to enter high school and continue with their education. With one book between two, this will allow for the children to truly focus on the lesson and give them the best possible chance to pass these exams. GVI strongly believe that this donation of text books, combined with a weekly high achievers class run by former volunteer, Nicky Williams, will help them to achieve this goal.’
This is the first time that students at Precious Vision have had the opportunity to sit their KCPE, a huge milestone for these deserving students. Many thanks for everyone who has supported this projects and helped to give these children opportunities which earlier students were denied.
