Project Report | Jan 15, 2014
New opportunities in 2014

By Emily Obiti | Field Worker

The new year has begun and Transition class is ready to admit new children, already new children are turning up, including some who were turned away last year because the Transition class was over-subscribed.

Mercy is one of these children who was waiting for the new school year to begin so that she could join the transition class. As she was welcomed to the class she reported that she had reached Standard Four in Primary School, however when she was asked her name and the spelling, she was unable to spell her name. When given a pen, she was barely able to hold it correctly to write. Teachers suspect that Mercy has some learning difficulties, unfortunately these are rarely picked up in local Primary schools and children are allowed to get far behind their fellow students.

In Transition class, Mercy will have the individual support she needs to catch up with the other children and teachers will do all they can to encourage her and restore her confidence. 2014 will be a year of great change for Mercy now she has new hope to return to school and get an education.

Thank you for your support for the Transition class, your contributions ensure that children like Mercy get the education that is their right.
