Students take the national exam
Students take the national exam

In November, at the end of the Kenyan academic year, high school seniors take a national exam to certify their completion of secondary school.  In the early years of the Project, our students struggled to perform as well on the exam as higher-income students who attended better-resourced schools. Through the years, however, our highly-motivated students have benefited from your steady support for their education and their scores have risen steadily. 

This year was our best year yet!  Of the 23 students who sat for the exam in 2015, 16 of them scored high enough to achieve direct admittance to the university with government support!! 

                2011 – 4 students (all boys)

                2012 – 6 students (all boys)

                2013 – 12 students (all boys)

                2014 – 14 students (8 boys and 6 girls)

                2015 – 16 students (8 boys and 8 girls)

This year’s accomplishment is 70% of our students, while the overall national average is only 30%.  This remarkable achievement was made possible by your commitment to provide for these young students' education.  On their behalf, we thank you for your generous support.
