Hello Pace Family! We hope you are all doing well and still keeping safe. This has been an exciting month for us; we are open to new possibilities and are grateful for what we have achieved so far with your support. Here are the highlights of what we’ve been doing.
School Leaders’ Summit
We held the School Leaders’ Summit, where we engaged headteachers and school directors from 16 partner schools in Nairobi to deliberate and align on strategies to increase support to learners. We discussed how to engage Parents and Board of Management in school development and in improving the quality of learning.
Street Business School (SBS)
Our Street Business School (SBS) trainings are ongoing, both in Nairobi and Kisumu. Our coaches teach parents from our partner schools business skills that enable them to find capital, keep better records and run successful income generating activities. The participants are encouraged to start with the resources they already have. When these parents are empowered with these skills and tools, they are able to provide for their households and keep their children in school.
PACE fellows, Clarence Muhoro, Hilda Anekeya, and Nifty Abdallah from Mathari Primary School through their determination and hardwork, secured a donation of Text Books worth Ksh 291, 540 from Moran (E.A.) Publishers Ltd . The books will help in enriching the learners’ experience and sharpening their intellect. Nevertheless, the fellows still need support to buy furniture for the library. Please help these fellows touch these children’s lives further, sponsor their initiative via Paybill: 891300, Account No: 45319.
Our Fellows are supporting different partner schools by engaging small groups of learners in a literacy improvement program using the Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) methodology. The learners are taken through fun and interactive games.
