Children Have Been Challenged To Work Much Harder

CES (Canadian Education Society) has extended its activities across the wider spectrum of Western in keeping with its common passion of ensuring that education is adequately achieved. CES believes that Education is the key to life for any country and so when they came to Western a few years back, they have left a mark. They offer scholarships to bright student from poor backgrounds, opharns, vulnerable children and the like. Through this initiative CES has caused most children who had a low self esteem inspired as they work very hard to achieve the pass mark 350 marks which is the minimum mark that qualifies them for sponsorship. Other organizations have followed suit and more children are being assisted.
