In a few short days Ikirwa School will be opening its doors for the new 2019 school year, our 7th in operation. We look forward to welcoming our first boarding students next month and graduating our first primary class in December. Due to a number of unexpected weather and logistical delays our projected completion date was delayed by almost a month. So, even though the school will open next week, we won’t begin boarding until early February. While it is disappointing that we won’t be able to take boarding student from day one, the delay is small compared to how long we have waited to be able to offer this option in the first place.
Most of the boarders will be students from class 7, who need the extra time to prepare for their final primary school exams. For a school that’s has been build from the ground up entirely with contributions from our grass roots supporters, we have learned to count our blessing, take obstacles in stride and keep moving forward. We sincerely hope that our next report will show you photos of those rooms filled with beds and their smiling inhabitants.
From all of us at Ikirwa School Project, may you have a happy and prosperous 2019.
