Graduation Day At Marah Primary School

Hooray For Last Days!!

Today marks the last day of the 2016 school year at Marah Christian Primary School!

Who doesn’t like that feeling?  The kids are elated to be finished with exams and the teachers are happy to finally be done with grading.

The whole community of Njeru came to celebrate all the students’ hard work.

Everyone, including the school board and local leaders, came and watched as some of the older students performed traditional African songs of celebration.  Parents came to see their children deliver well-prepared speeches as they received special recognitions.

This is one of the last times of the year that all the students will be gathered together like this.

Over the holiday break many families go back to their home villages to see their relatives.  They won’t be back until the beginning of the next term which is usually in February.

For now, we salute these kids for all their hard work and wish those who are leaving to the village a very merry Christmas.  Those who remain in Njeru, we will celebrate the holidays along with them.

Now Elizabeth is working to help students in third world countries like Uganda learn the skills that businesses and Non-Profits around the world want and need. By strategically partnering these students with SMB and Non-Profit organizations, they become empowered to lift themselves out of poverty while organizations benefit from increased revenue generation.
