Akili girls back to school
We are happy to share that all the 60 girls who attend Akili Preparatory School for Girls reported back to school on January 4th, 2021 when schools reopened after nearly 9 months of COVID 19 related school closures in Kenya.
As more schools reopen in other parts of the world, It is feared that about 10 million girls and young women risk not going back to school due to many barriers they face everyday including working to help fend for their families as well as looking after younger siblings.
Because of your partnership and donation, we have succeeded in bringing all our girls back to school by meeting their basic needs such as food, sanitary products and teachers stipends.
The girls will be in school until the end of April 2021when they will go for recess as the 8th and 12th graders start their primary and high school exit exams respectivey. For the past two weeks since reopening of schools, the girls have been involved in organic gardeing to produce veggies for improved nutrition at Akili school.
We are also providing school uniforms to 1000 students in our community to ensure that lack of school uniforms does not hold them back from acheiving their full potential.
It is our hope and prayer that 2021 will bring good tidings to all of us.
Thank you very much for your committment to give to transform the lives of disadvantaged girls through education.
May God Bless you richly.
