Join WISER International, our staff, board members, and (especially!) the students, as we celebrate the astounding accomplishments of 2022! 

On the first day of WISER we celebrate the 56 girls who graduated from WISER Secondary School in the spring.

One the second day of WISER we are so proud that 61.4% of WISER student's qualified for university in the spring national exam. That's 3.5 times higher than the national average.

One the third day of WISER we celebrate that we doubled the access to clean water for the greater Muhuru Bay community.

On the fourth day of WISER we celebrate that we built a library and multi-use community space.

On the fifth day of WISER we celebrate that we built four new classrooms.

On the sixth day of WISER we celebrate that we built two new volunteer houses.

On the seventh day of WISER we celebrate that we built seven new teacher and staff houses.

On the eighth day of WISER we celebrate that we built one new dormitory that will sleep 120 students.

On the ninth day of WISER we celebrate all of our new buildings meeting the ADA/KDA standards for accessibility, including the newly built restroom block.

On the tenth day of WISER we celebrate the 60 new girls who will start at WISER in January 2023!

On the eleventh day of WISER we celebrate that of the 60 new girls, seven new Ogiek students will start at WISER, increasing the total number of these indigenous students to 17. All of which have individual donor sponsors for their school fees.

On the twelfth day of WISER we celebrate the relaunching of our website, designed, and programmed by Kenyan women! We continue to engage female business consultants to help us with our virtual and social media presence, and fundraising campaigns.

None of this would have been possible without YOU! From all of us at WISER, thank you for your donations and ongoing commitment to our students.

Wishing you all happy holidays and a prosperous new year!
