Michael from Global Giving Org Visit
Because of your support, our girls successfully completed term 1 at Akili Boarding school. All the girls stayed in school all term and were provided with school uniforms, 3 meals a day and school supplies. We also hired a sports coach and our girls were able to actively participate in different sports including football and volleyball. The girls were mentored through our Smart Girls Program and we were very pleased to see their confidence and self-esteem soar as a result of participating in these programs. We also ensured that all those who are in need of sanitary pads received two packets each every month allowing them to go through their menses with dignity and keep them in school. We cant thank you all enough for partnering with us to make this possible and keep our wonderful girls in school.
As schools reopen for a second term next week, we are excited to meet our girls again and continue to support them through education for yet another term.
At the beginning of this month, we were happy to meet Mike from GlobalGiving who visited our project in Kisumu and highlighted to our team how we can effectively use GlobalGiving tools to be improve our work.
Thank you for walking this journey with us,
