Mr. Eddy Adison addressing Bahati Primary students
Receive our greetings from Tana Delta Kenya. Hope you are all keeping safe during this pandemic.
Schools in Kenya have opened for the last term of the year 2020 which will run for 2 months and later in July they will start the 2021 academic year. Our monitoring and evaluation team visited Bahati and Mnazini Primary schools who were beneficiaries of the project. In the previous year of 2019, Bahati Primary school had a mean score of 177.1. In the year 2020 National Exams, the class scored a mean score of 196.88. This showed a significant improvement. Their class teacher informed the team that the results were due to the students using the lanterns during night preps and early mornings in their homes.
For Mnazini primary school. In the year 2020, TRLF donated Lanterns to class sevens of this school and they will be doing their exams in March 2022. Mnazini village is not connected to the national electricity grid. The headteacher Mr. Mwalili acknowledged that through the project they’ve come up with better strategies of helping their students where Board of Management (B.O.M) teacher, is tasked to supervise students during their night studies at the village. They are expecting to have better results when they sit for their exams.
From the observations by the monitoring and evaluation team, the project has been of great help in the interior schools of Tana Delta, precisely to those that are not linked to the national electricity grid. Thus, continued support towards such schools will in turn bring out positive impacts to the students and the entire community. The lights will shine brighter to both the learner and the community at large.
