Your update from Vision Africa's Seed of Hope

As of 2017, approximately 1,300 girls have graduated from our Seed of Hope programme with not only a certificate in their course of studies, but with the confidence to compete in the job market and make positive impact wherever they go. 

As the year comes to an end, there is always splendor and excitement at our Seed of Hope centres across Kenya as the second year students graduate from their courses. Kariti Seed of Hope centre held their celebration on Wednesday last week with 42 graduates, while 51 Seed of Hope Kitui students graduated on Friday. Our Nairobi centre will graduate in January. These annual events bring together families, friends, former graduates and the whole community to witness the achievements of the students at the end of their training. According to teacher Faith from Kariti centre, the number of people who came to witness the graduation had doubled that of 2017! This is due to greater impact the programme has made in the lives of many young people who are now making a positive impact in the community they come from.

A young woman called Rachel attended the Kariti graduation - she graduated from Kariti Seed of Hope in 2009 and is now running her own dressmaking, fashion design business in a town close to her village. She was invited to give a speech during the graduation ceremony and was full of praise of how the Seed of Hope programme took her from feeling hopeless to a great businesswoman. Rachel who is now married with two children had this to say “my heart is overwhelmed with happiness seeing the number of graduates who have worked hard to complete their courses. I am so grateful for the opportunity that Seed of Hope gave me because am living a good life because the seed that was planted 10 years ago has bore good fruits that my family and I enjoy.”

She encouraged the 2018 graduating class to be proactive in looking for internship and job opportunities this festive season so that they can start to earn a living. Rachel was among the 15 former graduates from Kariti Seed of Hope centre who attended the ceremony. We wish all the 2018 graduates all the best as they go out to utilize their skills and make a living!

The impact that this programme has had in the lives of young women like Rachel would not have been possible without your generous giving! Thank you for supporting our Seed of Hope programme and helping us to give young women opportunity to fulfill their potential.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!
