We thank you deeply for supporting our teachers. First term have been successful so far mainly due to the two extra teachers we were able to hire in January 2018.
With the funds we have received, we hae been able to keep our teachers in school ensuring that our girls are learning and get the support they deserve.
Because of your support, we have retained $100% of our teachers ensuring timely implementation of the syllabus.
Availability of teachers has also impacted positively on the girls. Akili girls do not miss school because they know that the teachers are always present.
The teachers are engaging students in other after school programs including smart girl program which teaches self confidence and life skills to the girls, girl guides and sports program which focuses on reproductive health and leadership as well as sustainakility club which teaches the girls to be good stewards of the environment and grow food to sustain Akili School.
With a teacher to student ration of 1: 15, our goal is to have 90% of our girls scoring above average in their tests.
We are working with our new teachers by taking them on regular trainings so that they can learn ways of improving student perofrmance and caring for the girls.
We also have different volunteers from University of Edinburgh UK, Chalmers University Sweden and USA who are working with our teachers on different areas including reprductive health, leadership and literacy.
Thank you so much for giving to pay our teachers and give our girls an opportunity to access quality education.
God bless you!
