New year new beginning!

2018 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examination results were released in mid December 2018. 17 students who have been under our mentorship program recorded good perfomance in the exams courtesy of our team of volunteers who carried out targeted mentorship and teaching for these students.

2019 prgram have seen four high school students out of the forty targeted for this program identified for the tuition fees pament and purchase of learning materials. The organization has recruited four volunteer teachers to provide teaching assistance and individually support students in most need through mentorship.

We are happy the project is a success as more children finish primary and secondary school with a high level of literacy. We envision that by the end of 2019 we shall have reached our target of 40 students benefitting from the program and more than 30 students recording good performance in the national examinations.

Strategies for new program 2017

Progressive Volunteers has made tremendous efforts to address the low job practical skills and unemployment problem in Ruaraka community. The organization established a small dressmaking and tailoring training centre to tackle the problems of low practical skill levels and lack of income generating opportunities for our target group especially the women and youth. The organization has trained 171 women and youth on various dressmaking, sewing and tailoring skills. 

The project has perfectly worked to reduce poverty of vulnerable groups in Ruaraka as most of the trained women secure skilled employment at the Export Processing zones (EPZs industries) and others starting their own businesses. We hope to help more women and youth come 2017 when we shall relaunch our training program. 

Kindly join us in empowering our women and youth to become self-reliant.
