Taking A Break From School

Lillian, Joyce, and Teresia

Last weekend was half term break for our girls at Saint Monica’s. They got four days off from school. I know that may not seem like such a big deal to us here, but it is. You see, on a typical school day, our girls go from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm. They also go to school on Saturdays as well until noon.

Why you ask? The chance to get into a great High School is so very competitive in Kenya. Each girl has to work extra hard to get the grades she needs to be accepted. Our girls understand this. So they work day in and day out to get the best grades they can possibly get.

So last Thursday, this picture was taken of Lillian, Joyce and Teresia when they arrived back from school. They were happy to be able to take a few days off and just enjoy being a kid before the next half of the term began. Now, this week, the work begins once again.

We are so very proud of each girl as she moves forward to her academic goals. Each one of them has a dream, and we are so very lucky to witness it.
