Dear our valued supporters,

We hope this finds you well.

It is exciting to share the beautiful progress and quotes from our recent graduates with you.

Our  students participated in various workshops such as soap and detergent making, tie and dye and regular classes also went on as scheduled for the first half of 2023.

The Entrepreneurship, Financial Literacy and Computer (EFC) Cohort 3 class graduated after successfully completing the 7 weeks course. This group consisted of 73 students and all of them managed to complete their course and successfully graduated.

The Technical and Vocational Education (TVET) students finished their 6 months of training and have all transitioned into industrial attachment hosted by our partner organisations, local businesses, and former graduates. This will allow  them to gain practical work experience and apply the skills they learned in real-world settings for the next 3 months before they can go into employment.

Some of the sampled quotes and feedback from the EFC Cohort 3 graduates include the following:

"The entrepreneurship course at Seed of Hope has been a game-changer for me. I learned how to turn my ideas into a viable business and gained the confidence to start my own venture. Thank you for empowering me with the skills and knowledge I needed to succeed." – *John, EFC Cohort 3, 2023 Nairobi Graduate.

"Seed of Hope's EFC program empowered me to turn my passion into a profitable business. As a young mother, I now have the skills and knowledge to provide for my family and create a better future. Thank you for giving me the confidence to pursue my dreams." – *Mary, EFC Cohort 3, 2023 Nairobi Graduate.

"The computer packages I learnt at Seed of Hope provided me with the practical skills needed in today's digital world. I now feel confident in my abilities." – *Fiona, EFC Cohort 3, 2023 Kitui Graduate.

Enrolment of EFC cohort 4  and TVET cohort 2  took place at the beginning of the month of July and at the moment, 221  students have been enrolled and going through Amuka, which is a one week self awareness intensive training designed to ensure students develop emotional intelligence, soft skills, and confidence needed to succeed in their training at Seed of Hope and by extension in employment and self-employment after graduation.

Thank You for being part of this success! We will be updating more on the second half of the year cohort and how they are progressing
