Cohort 9 Report

Cohort 9 Box making classes begin!
Cohort 9 Box making classes begin!

We began Cohort 9 in February 2021  with 10 youth from underprivileged homes in Nairobi, we picked a smaller number due to the rising numbers of Covid 19 in Kenya. We are doing physical classes at the center where we have implemented all government and WHO set precautionary measures.  We are reworking our remote model to ensure quality and will be embarking on an hybrid system starting May with 25 students per intake.

Kenya did not carry out its secondary examinations KCSE in 2020 due to the pandemic and many of the youth enolled have been home for long and some were aleady doing menial jobs to survive. We've had to accomodate them working with trainers and the team to be more flexible. I would like to hightlight Vivian who works as a demostic worker and is able to do her duties and attend 2 hrs of class every day carying extra assignments home. We chose to support her because she is her family breadwiner and missed her univerty spot due to poverty,  her family coud only afford to support one child and chose her brother to procee to universty and her to stay home. She scored a B stand and we are working to support her get admitted to the public university and truly impact her life trajectory.

We did not reaching our funding goal of USD 10,000 to enable us to purchase the box making machines which will ensure that our students make income that will afford them dignity of life and savings towards their goals while undertake our program, We will be launching an appeal in April for the balance amount through global givng and we invite you to join and support us on this mission. This machines will ensue vivian doesnt have to work as a domestic worker but be more creative and create products and earning from the sales.

The good news is that our partner Seeds For Hope has increased our college scholarships for 2021 to five, these scholarships are truly life changers to the youth who would have never afforded to go to college. I would like to take this oppoturnity to thank them and appeal to anyone who may have any connectins to more schoalrsips to kindly reach out.

We are now at 130 youth and we have achived this milestone because of all our donors. Thank you for your continued patronage.
