Omondi heads to university!

Often we are asked what happens to our students after they have finished secondary school.  Are they able to continue their education at a university?

Increasingly our students are scoring so well on the comprehensive national exam at the end of high school that they are granted immediate entry to the university with government tuition assistance.  In November, 2014, 26 of our students took the exam.  All 26 students passed the exam, with over 50% (14 students) scoring well enough to be granted immediate university entry with government tuition assistance, compared to a 31% national average.  One student, Omondi, achieved the highest possible grade of "A," a score attained by less than 1% of all students nationwide. 

Omondi wants to study medicine and is waiting for his calling letter to one of the national universities.  As the youngest of 5 children, Omondi's plans to become a doctor fulfill a dream for the entire family which has struggled to meet basic needs since his father died many years ago.  Omondi's mother moved with the children back to the family home in rural Chulaimbo, but even with help from extended family it was impossible to pay the $350 annual tuition for the children's high school. With your support, all the children have completed high school and Omondi's "A" score is the capstone achievement of the entire family!

On behalf of Omondi's family, we thank you for your financial support which made his "A" possible.  As Omondi heads off to university to become a doctor, many other young students are showing equal promise.  We appreciate your commitment to making sure they also have the opportunity to get their education and contribute to their community!
