Project Report | Jan 12, 2022
Walking together

By Emily Obiti | Field Worker

Esau had fallen about three years behind his schoolmates academically but teacher Collins saw Esau’s determination to catch up and committed to walk the journey with him. Teacher Collins became his mentor and is working with him to set goals and problem solve. Since Esau joined the transition programme, he has made huge progress, he still has a lot of catching up to do but he has come out of his skin, made friends and grown in confidence.

In our last update we shared that we have adopted a new approach by running the Transition programme inside the school rather than in a separate centre. Overall, this has been a great success. Like Esau, the 21 new students have found their place in the school community with help from student buddies and mentor teachers.

We still have work to do to improve the remedial support for the students, finding ways to assess each child’s learning needs and condense the curriculum in a way that helps kids catch up faster are all big challenges. But we are learning and making progress each term.

Thank you so much for your support to enable children in Kibera to return to school and complete their education.
