This month, KEF staff visited 470 of our scholars in about 95 KEF partner schools across Kenya. The purpose of the visits was to check in on our students, see how well the new ones are settling in, talk to their teachers and maintain our good relationships with the school administrators.
Our scholars are doing exceptionally well, with a number of KEF students among the top scorers in their classes. Most have joined extra-curricular clubs and represent their schools during co-curricular activities like science congress, drama festival and sporting competitions.
We were also very proud to see so many KEF scholars taking up leadership roles in their respective schools as Head Girls or Boys, Prefects and Captains. They expressed a lot of gratitude to their sponsors and are thrilled to be in school.
Coming up in April we have KEF Life Skills Workshops for our 9th and 11th graders, as well as KEF's Career readiness, Reproductive health and Entrepreneurship Workshop (CREW) that focuses on getting our recent high school graduates ready for the career world.
