As reported in January, we had planned to support the most vulnerable pupils from Mukinyai who passed their final exams. We are happy to report that we managed to support 5 pupils from the most vulnerable households to join secondary schools. Three of them joined day schools in the area where two of them were lucky to join boarding schools. They have been at home for the April holiday and they reported that they are progressing on well. We are in the process of organizing paying school fees for the next term. We also managed to get others supported by the government through bursaries and we will continue pushing the responsible team to continue supporting them even in the other school terms. We organized a youth seminar with all school leavers in the area where we encouraged them to consider joining youth polytechnics which are cheaper and they will learn different technical skills. Some of them have already joined youth polytechnics and we are happy that our concerns were taken positively by students and their parents and guardians. We will continue encouraging them also to consider joining youth groups to enable them get further support from the government through youth funds and other opportunities provided by different players. We are happy that we are still making progress towards this though at slower pace, thank you all those who have been supporting this project.
