Our determined girls came back and over 90% re-opened when the Kenyan Government resumed the opening of schools in the beginning of January 2021 only to be rudely interrupted once again with another lockdown from 19th March 2021. Luckily during this reporting period, the Government has once again opened schools with strict adherance to the COVID-19 rules on 11th May 2021.
Beginning this week (17th May 2021) we have seen a number of our girls coming back to school and the actual number are yet to be known in the next two weeks. Among 152,000 Kenyan teenage girls reported pregnant during the first lockdown only 5 from our schools were reported not coming back but whether due to pregnancy or some other issues, we are yet to establish.
