January and February School Updates
An Update About Our End of Year Campaign
Thank you to all of our supporters who helped make our SHE IS UNSTOPPABLE campaign a success. During December, Light of Hope raised over $30,000 to allow us to welcome additional girls to our campus during 2020. You are a blessing to us!
Light of Hope Student, Jane W, proposed public park clean up and received government funding to proceed
Jane W led a group of youth to clean up a designated park space in Naivasha that had over the past number of years fallen into disrepair. After receiving government approval and funding, on January 15 the volunteers successfully conducted a first trash pick up. Residents of Naivasha are excited about Jane’s plans to plant trees and grass to further improve the site. It will be gratifying to see future use and enjoyment of this park space. We are proud of you, Jane.
Update about 8th grade testing, rising high schoolers
Our 2019 8th Grade Class tested well on the very rigorous Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exam. Here are highlights about three of our newly admitted Form 1 high school girls:
Vivian W has been at Light of Hope since 2011. She has been very industrious and determined. She earned a very high score, which is commendable.
Lucy G joined Light of Hope in 2015. Her disciplined approach and gratitude for her quality education urged her on to a high score as well.
Tabitha W has worked hard and stayed focused on her Light of Hope classes since her arrival in 2013. Lucy scored well on her test.
All three girls are looking forward to their first year of secondary education! Congratulations, girls. We are very proud of your achievements.
You are inspiring to other Light of Hope girls.
