This year we have 12 Project Workers based in six schools surrounding Kisii Town. These have been carefully selected by EPAfrica volunteers in order to allow us to maximise our impact from limited resources. Despite lacking in basic learning materials, the schools have excellent management who ensure our investments will be used effectively. We’re very excited to be returning to five schools that have already had one or two years of EPAfrica investment as well as welcoming one new school into our programme this year.
Having spent a few days taking part in some on-site training and finding their way around Kisii Town, on Friday 5th July, Project Workers met their Head Teachers at the Kisii Head Teachers’ Conference 2014. It was a day filled with chai, mandazi and stimulating discussion on the Kenyan education system, allowing us to catch up on any new developments affecting our schools over the last year. Following a delicious lunch and mandatory group photograph, the PWs excitedly headed off to their villages for a challenging week of exploring their rural communities.
