My month has been good, I am happy that I am preparing for my graduation ceremony happening in December, it is so encouraging that the four year journey is finally over, I thank the KenyaHELP family for walking with me. It has been a month where I have been trying different job positions as I try growing my entrepreneurial aspirations. It is a month that me and few friends we have been visiting different children’s homes to encourage and share with them.

Hello family.
I can’t hold the tears of joy when I envisage one milestone achievement I have made in life through your support. I honestly  don’t imagine where I could be ,the type of person I would be if KenyaHELP never chipped in in my studies. When I look back to some of my friends who never got such a golden opportunity as the one you gave me ,I can only look up and thank God for you KENYAHELP! 
          How can I pay this? You may never understand the impact you’ve had in my life! An eternal testimony I will keep for the generations to come.
          I thank God for using you to bring hope,light and an awakening call in my life,pushing me towards unlocking my potential and making me achieve my dreams! The candle you lit in my life since form two will never go off.
          In addition to that am delighted to let you know that am graduating. You can be sure am the happiest girl at this time of waiting for the day. I will be awarded a bachelor’s degree in commerce Accounting option and don’t forget I have got CPA (K) .Who can deny this is not a double achievement? Just because of your presence in my life has earned me a title I could never have. It was not easy but you’ve been there for me .Jill thank you for giving a shoulder to lean on when I felt that everything was falling apart,thank you for your counsels and encouragement.Sometimes I even contemplated death but you reminded me the purpose for which I was on earth for. Thank you dearly.
          I promise to extend the same kindness you have shown mean to the community and more so mentoring the high school students by example.
          I already got a job even before I get my certificates and after I got  this job, I have received two more interview invitations for jobs and I believe God to sustain me in the college where am tutoring students.
          Thank you for being instruments of change in my life.I value and treasure you.May the Lord bless you mightily.
Lots of love
Thank you
Irene

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens

This year our High School Retreat was based on Sean Covey’s book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens. Over the past years this has been one of our favorite offerings, both with those leading the retreats as well as with the students and this year was no exception. When the team wasn’t working with our High School Students exploring the Seven Habits, they were visiting our partner schools and meeting with Administrators and our students, and attending classes. In addition, our team had an AMAZING time reconnecting with our past graduates at our graduate networking days in Nairobi and in Meru.

KenyaHELP Intern Program

Our Intern Program continues to generate additional, and much needed help for our KenyaHELP Team. in 2018 we had the assistance of Hamza Umar who was indispensable in putting together our student material for our 2018 mission trip. In 2017 Nate accompanied us on our KenyaHELP Humanitarian Mission Trip as well as reworking the leadership workshop presentation materials and reworking the workbook; Mohamed assisted with helping to set up product and gift donations in Spring of 2017; and Skyla is a wiz with videos and helped to put together our presentations for the most recent Harambee and for use for outreach and community engagement. This program would not be possible if it weren’t for our partnership with UW Green Bay.
