Three new Jirani Project graduates join the 16 other graduates of this project – having completed all years of primary school and the KCPE exam, all four years of secondary school and the KCSE exam, and a transition education program at a technical school, trade school, or college. We are proud of all the earlier graduates: they are employed, raising families, and active in their communities – and congratulate three new young people who are now able to be “jiranis” (neighbors) to children around them.
In December, 2016, Silverias and Japeth completed their training at Maseno Youth Polytechnic in Vihiga County in western Kenya and passed the requisite exams. Silverias received his certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and Japeth obtained a certificate in Motor Vehicle Mechanics, Wiring, and Driving.
Doris completed her apprenticeship in Tailoring and Garment Making/Business from a tailoring school in western Kenya. She received a treadle sewing machine from the Jirani Project, plus supplies that will enable her to set up her own business making dresses, school uniforms, shirts, and other local clothing.
Congratulations to all!
