Project Report | Aug 1, 2022
Graduation 2022

By Jennifer B Hughes | Founder/CEO

The final week leading up to graduation is always an exciting time for our staff and students.

There are the final exams on our computer science course.

The students are tested on their ability to operate and troubleshoot repairs on an industrial knitting machine, enabling them to work at any manufacturing facility. 

They are tested on the industrial sewing machines they will be using if they decide to stay in Nakuru or move to another large city and work at a manufacturing facility.


 

There is a practical test on how to design their own fashion, create a pattern, and produce the final item while working on a manually operated trundle sewing machine, as some of the students will be returning to their rural areas where electricity may not be available.

These determined young women have sacrificed a great deal to attend our one-year course during these unprecedented times. Prior to everyone being fully vaccinated for Covis 19, in December 2021, nobody was allowed to leave the complex. In a society where family and community connections are very important, this was a huge sacrifice.  Our requirement for the January 2022 intake of students was that they have proof of being fully vaccinated.
Finally, in January 2022 we could let our guard down and allow the girls to spend Sundays visiting family, and their young friends, and attending their local church. That was until one Monday morning when 12 girls woke up with Covid symptoms. So back to full lockdown for the students.
Congratulations ladies. We are all proud of your determination and perseverance under very trying times. We wish you tremendous success in your future endeavors. 
Warmest regards,

Jennifer Hughes-Bystrom

 

Your continued support of this program has helped so many young women escape the cycle of poverty over the past five years.
Every woman who is able to lift herself out of poverty through education and vocational skills is able to raise and educate her younger siblings and children, thus breaking the poverty cycle forever.
Asante Sana
