Update from Team Kenya

Home | News | Update from Team Kenya

Team Kenya enable communities in Western Kenya to free themselves from poverty, injustice and inequality. We’ve proud to support the work they do and they’ve sent us an update with all the latest news.
Meet Bonface!

Bonface was employed as our Education Officer. He is passionate about education and is also a qualified teacher.

The students are overjoyed and they have been given a boost by the new revision books which are really helping them.
Meet Noven!

Noven is our homework club tutor. She specialises in Maths, a subject that our students really need extra support with. She is also a great role model to the girls.
New books and resources!

Tea break!
The students now receive lunch and snacks while attending homework club. This really helps with concentration as many only survive on one meal a day. We also have students who live far away and they were trekking to homework club without anything to eat.

What the students have to say

Josephine Anyango, Form 3

Home work Club has really helped students in areas where they are weak specifically in some subjects which they are getting difficulties in. The tutors you provided to us are really helping .

“You may find that when you are in school you may not get enough time to study a specific subject within one hour until you understand it deeply but in homework club you take one subject a day and you study it deeply and keenly until you understand it very easily.

“It had helped me seriously according to subjects that I am weak in and I have improved very much. I had really appreciated that. I would like to say a word of thanks for providing us with lunch after studying in Home work club.

“It had really helped student because you might find that after studying one may not be able to go back home when he or she is very hungry but since you started providing us with lunch we have energy for going back and even if you do not get lunch back at home you can still survive because you had had enough to eat.

“It has really helped me specifically because I am coming from far place to Karibuni so I may get easy time and energy to trek back home. I would like to urge you to continue with the same spirit because we are benefiting a lot, specifically in academics.

Hellsmary Akinyi, Form 2

I word like to pass on my thanks for providing us with many revisions books, they are really helping us in academics and we now get easy time to study as we share with each other at homework club

We would like to say a BIG thank you for your support in helping us improve the lives of young people in Ndhiwa through education.
