We continue to ensure that as many girls complete their schooling. Despite the many challenges we can report that due to the school calender that was affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic, national exams took place in April this year for the candidates of 2021 and in December another national examination will be done for Grade 6, Grade 8 and Grade 12.
The three national examinations will be done inorder to revert back to the old Kenyan school calender where national examinations are done between November and December of every year. The effect of COVID-19 aside, Kenya school curriculum also changed to Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) where grade 6 will proceed to Junior Secondary unlike the previous system where grade 8 was the class to join Secondary school.
While we exited 49 students among them 23 girls in Secondary school and 24 pupils in primary school where 11 were girls to colleges, university , tertiary and secondary school in April 2022, this coming December we expect over about 30 girls from grade 6 and grade 8 plus 25 from secondary school.
In total it means a total of 89 girls will be completing their schooling successfully without dropping out this year. We want to sincerely appreciate you because you are part of this success to ensure girls finish their schooling successfully and proceed to join tertiary, colleges and universities as their lives become much better. We have witnessed great successes since we commenced this fundraising through GlobalGiving.
