Kenyatta University Female Students in Science and Technology (KUFEST) on the 19th September 2009 came down to our village to give girls some tips for life.
Mss Amo Rebecca, the chairperson of KUFEST and a third year student at Kenyatta University shared with the TYSA Girls health Club members and the St.Teresa Secondary school sinyereri girls. 55 girls participated. Among the key issues discussed include:
Basics of Reading Behaviours; which relates to always reading a head of the teacher, revise after a lesson, form discussion group, read different books, have a goal in life, good time management, choose your friends wisely, ask questions in class, be active in class
Relationships; girls should know what they want in relationships, think about education first, avoid unprotected sex,
Reproductive Health; medical checks are important, use clean sanitary towels to avoid infections, get involved in sports,
‘ I am grateful to TYSA by brining the guest today. We girls here have not sent anyone to the university for the last 15 years. Iam so inspired now and lookfoward to reading hard and going to the university in the next two years’ Mary ,Laboratory Prefect St Teresa Girls
With your continued donations, the girls will be making a visit to Kenyatta University next year for a study tour to inspire them.
With Warm Regards
