Our Girls' Dreams for the Future on International Women's Day

By Jennica Stephenson | Assistant Director

Hello from Enoosaen and from all our girls at the Kakenya Center for Excellence!

Our year is off to a great start, with 186 students in grades 4-8 -- the largest study body we have ever had! In January, we welcomed our new class of fourth graders into the KCE family. They were all equipped with uniforms and learning materials and are now settled into life at our school. We are so excited to see their transformation as they grow in confidence and knowledge in a nurturing, all-girls environment. 

After a short mid-term break, the girls returned to campus this week and are back in their daily academic and extracurricular routines. We are especially looking forward to two exciting upcoming events in the second half of the term. First, our brand new school library is nearing completion, which will give the girls a quiet place to study provide a new home for our supply of literature. Second, the season of athletic competitions has begun, and our girls are doing very well in volleyball and netball. They are heading to regional competitions next week, and we can’t wait to cheer them on!

Last week, on March 8th, our girls in Enoosaen joined with women and men around the world to celebrate International Women’s Day. They marked the occasion by sharing their hopes and dreams for the year 2030. We are so inspired by their personal ambitions and also for their vision for a better world – one of equal opportunity and dignity for all. As our friends and supporters, we wanted to share some of these dreams with you. Your support is making it possible for our girls to dream big and to believe that they can achieve their goals. 

Thank you, as always, for believing in our mission to transform the lives of vulnerable girls through education!
