In Kenya, all students attend school through the eighth grade. At the end of eight grade, everyone takes a test and only those who pass continue on to high school. The Imani Project encourages students who don’t go to high school to attend Polytechnic (trade school). Polytechnic schools offer training for secretaries, tailors, electricians, early childhood educators, and other occupations.
We are very proud of our Imani Project graduates who have continued to high school and Polytechnic! Despite many difficulties and difficult living situations, they have persevered with their studies. These young men and women will be able to secure employment for themselves and bring in money for their families. We are very grateful to their sponsors who pay school fees and living expenses.
