Kenya has officially set January 4, 2021 as a date for in person learning of all schools. Schools were closed indefinitely in March 2020 due to Covid-19. In October, the Kenyan government had allowed phased reopening with students of Grade 4, Standard 8 (primary school finalists) and Form 4 (secondary school finalists) reporting back to school.
The organization continued to bridge the learning gap brought by the COVID-19 pandemic in Ruaraka Community by engaging the services of the volunteer teachers and mentors to carry out home schooling. Our volunteers have continued to play key role in the community to ensure that assignments and learning resources are given to the students we are supporting in our program. This arrangement has benefitted 172 candidates during the Covid-19 restriction period.
With the return to in person learning of all schools, the organization has identified 24 beneficiaries from 7 schools who will receive educational materials and tuition fee. The organization with the available resources and through a team of dedicated volunteers will directly provide free teaching assistance and support these 24 underprivileged students through mentorship, and organising extra-curricular activities. It is envisioned that more students from the 7 schools will indirectly benefit from the project and complete schooling with a high level of literacy and core skills, enabling them to succeed in life.
