Class 8 exam results coming soon!

In late November the Kenyan school year came to a close.  Across the country, students in Class 8 (8th grade) took the national exam which certifies their completion of primary school.  Performance on this this exam is a critical determinant of the student's opportunities in secondary school.  The higher the score, the better the high school one is eligible to attend.  When scores are released in early January, we will select the 25 new secondary students we will support through high school.  Our selection is based on personal circumstances and need, as well as academic performance on the exam. 

Therefore, it is an anxious time for students like Sophy who took the exam last month.  Sophy was orphaned at a very young age and lives with her two sisters and brother with their grandmother.  The family gets by with support from the Global Interfaith Partnership: blankets for sleeping, a school lunch which assures her of one meal each day, and mentoring through the GET UP program.

At the end of the school term, Sophy was ranked #3 in her class. We wait anxiously for her exam results, and hope she made highest marks!

Thank you for your ongoing support for students like Sophy.  As the Kenyan school year begins again in January, we count on your donations to be able to make sure another class of capable students can go to high school and fulfill their dreams!
