Scholastica is one of our 20 Form 1 girls!
Since we launched this project to help 20 talented young Kenyans access a high school education, the world has been turned upside down by COVID-19. There are two things we want you to know about EFAC at the moment, and about the status of your generous donations. 1. Our COVID-19 response has been immediate and thoughtful, and we are successfully navigating this 'new normal' - we have never felt stronger or more committed to this work! 2) The girls whom you supported in this project remain engaged with their education, and we are closely monitoring the Kenya Ministry of Education's plan for re-opening secondary schools. We are in touch with each girl, and know they are healthy and safe as they await their return to school. Your donations remain focused on providing access to education for these EFAC scholars; their futures are bright thanks to the support you demonstrated in March during this campaign!
One of the most unique and exciting aspects of our COVID response has been the purchase of a smartphone (loaded with data and educational software) for all 340 secondary scholars. We had terrific partners and donors contribute to this emergency effort, and the result is that our students will continue to learn despite coming from challenging circumstances and remote regions of Kenya. We don't know of any other education NGO that has been able to provide this remote learning tool for its participants. If you are interested in learning about how Kenya, and EFAC, are managing during the pandemic, we have included a link below to our website update on COVID-19.
We want to thank you so much for investing in education for these very special Kenyan girls. Never has the world demanded more of us as global citizens, and you have stepped up to the plate at the perfect time. Because of you, 20 talented Kenyan students can stay in school. Be it remotely or on-site... their lives will be forever changed!
Nothing but JOY when you send a girl to school!
