Happy New Year! As you may know, your mentee headed back to school at the beginning of January. While she was on holiday, she had time to catch up with her family and friends, as well as, unwind after a long year of hard work. Due to the strike in December, she started the 2018 year off with examinations, which had been previously scheduled for December.
Happy New Year! Your mentee returned to school on January 2nd after one of the longest holidays in the school's calendar year. While she was away, she had time to catch up with family and friends, as well as unwind after a long year of hard work. Once she returned, she also moved on to the next grade, meaning if she was in Form three she is now in Form four.
As we come to the close of 2017, we reflect on the fruitful year experienced by everyone in the Global Give Back Circle. So much has happened in only twelve months, because of the continuous support we receive from women from all over the globe who step up to mentor the girls/young women in the program.
It is another happy month for us. We are very grateful that peace has prevailed in West Pokot, despite the hostile political climate in the country. We have also had another class of girls graduate from the program, plus a group of international mentors who visited us in West Pokot, which made this month a busy and inspiring one.
Students in Form one, two and three at St. Elizabeth's closed school on the 20th of October. This marked the end of the school year. Your mentee will return to school in January to start a new year, as she enters the next grade.
