Final Project before Graduation!

By Emily Obiti | Field Worker

Sylvester is currently in the thick of writing his final project and providing all goes well, he will graduate with a Bachelors of Commerce in December this year. What an incredibly exciting thought! Sylvester will be the first young person to come from the streets, through the Turning Point programme, and go on to earn a degree. We are incredibly proud of his hard work, as are his family.

This final project or dissertation is hard work but its the only remaining hurdle between Sylvester and his degree, then he will launch into the world of work. We hope that his time in university has put him in good stead to take on the next challenge of hunting for an internship or job to start off his career.

This project is now fully funded which means all the funds needed for Sylvester to finish off have been provided. Sylvester is grateful to all those who have supported him in his studies and wishes to pass his heartfelt thanks. We at Turning Point are also so thankful for Sylvesters supporters as it is a great encouragement to all of the staff and the children remaining in the programmes to see Sylvester do so well. His success will certainly inspire others so thank you for making this possible.
