The first term of the school year is over,

The first term of the school year is over, and many of our young people are at or near the top of their class!  Most secondary schools in Kenya are boarding schools comprised of students from all over the country, so our SYEF students are in schools in which some classmates come from parts of the country where primary schools have much greater resources. It can feel intimidating to a Samburu youth when a classmate talks about the computers and labs in their primary school, while the SYEF’s students’ primary schools may not even have had electricity.


Many of our students overcome this through hard work and resilience, and it shows in their class rank. We have numerous students ranked in the top five in a class of hundreds! While the high marks are awesome, we are most proud of our students’ hard work ethic and commitment to their success.
