The children at Liyavo have recently spent a month away from school for the holidays in April. They spent their time visiting members of their extended family and enjoying their freedom. Their reports showed improvement in performance for the majority the children so we are very happy. They are all now back in school for the second term. We would like to thank all of our GlobalGiving donors for assisting us in providing care for our children and ensuring that we can help them to attend school and lead happy lives. With donations we have received from a GG donor who has recently visited us in Kitale we are currently working with local suppliers to purchase a complete set of up-to-date primary school text books, at a discounted rate, for our children to use when they are studying at home. The same donor has also raised funds for playground equipment. The children have been making the most of the new roundabout and swing set and we hope that a see-saw will arrive soon (please see new pictures). This at Liyavo, year we have five candidates in standard 8. This is the last year in of primary school Kenya and the students sit their Kenya Certificate of Education (KCPE) exams in November. Our students are already looking forward nervously and will start attending extra classes at the weekends with a volunteer teacher to help give them a boost in their preparation. The grade they achieve at the end of the year will not only determine whether they go to secondary school or a vocational training alternative, but also which high school they will attend. In the last three months we have successfully reintegrated 17 children with their families. This is the ultimate goal that CRK has for all the children we work with. Liyavo provides a long term home for those children who require extra support and a longer time interval for this move. Each of the children receives regular visits to ensure that they have settled in, are attending school and are well supported by their families. The children were very happy to be rejoining their families.
