Project Report | May 6, 2013
Loading up the units

By Emily Smith | Field Worker

Sylvester's course is going well and he continues to show great interest and dedication to his studies. The Commerce course involve lot of maths and business topics but the students also o assignments on wider topics that are relevant to developments in Kenya. Sylvester is learning to do research in the library and on the internet on these wide topics and is really broadening his reading beyond Commerce.

Last year Sylvester increased his workload to study 6 units each semester rather than just 3, this will help him to progress through the course much faster, he is eager to launch into his career and use what he has been learning. He has continued to perform very well in these units despite the extra work, scoring well in his end of term exams.

Sylvester has also learnt to use a laptop and is able to word process his assignments using a laptop he has borrowed from Turning Point, this computer skills will further increase his ability to get a job later. Recently Sylvester has been looking for some part-time work so that he can help support his family back in Kibera while he studies, as yet he has not found anything
