Nyota Ing'arayo Register for first KCPE!

2013 is a significant year for Nyota Ing’arayo School . In January one of Nyota dreams is starting to become a reality as the school now as a Standard 8 this has been made possible thanks to the dedicated staff team and GVI donations supported by GVI Charitable Trust. Extra classes have been built over the last two years, meaning the school has the space to retain Standard 8 (the final year of primary school education in Kenya).

In January along with the help of Tom 0.Munyaisa GVI Education Officer  the Standard 8 students have been collecting the  required registration documents need to  register for the Kenyan Certificate of Primary Education examination in November i.e. Birth Certificates and photographs  Lack of formal identification is a common barrier to students in slum schools being formally registered for certification and without the assistance of GVI and the school leaders it would have been impossible for the students to gather these documents

The KCPE’s is paramount in enabling children to further their education and enhance their future prospects. If the students manage to achieve results within the top 10% of the country they are frequently offered a scholarship to a local high school.  Even children who don’t achieve this will have a greater chance of successfully securing employment, as a KCPE certificate is a key requirement requested by employers upon application.  This includes basic jobs such as shop assistants and hotel catering.

Conclusion

The fact that the current students finally have the opportunity to sit their KCPE examinations is significant  step for Nyota Ing’arayo.  The school now as the opportunity to provide the students with a full Primary education from Standard 1 to Standard 8.  This has been achieved with the help of GVI, and the dedication of current and past volunteer’s donations which have enabled classrooms to be built and the provision of educational resources.
