Keeping up with Kesho – Activity Chapter

As we cross over into the second half of the year, its time to look back and see what Kesho has achieved as from January-June of 2018. 

  1. Street Business School Training (SBS)

Our SBS has brought together cluster groups and parents as we train them on how to create a business that will earn them income.

  1. Employability Skills Training

As much as we want our beneficiaries to shine in their academics, Kesho recognises more than just academics. We have educated high school students and youth on interview etiquette and office dress code, cover letters and CV writing; ready to tackle the rest of 2018 and their futures.

  1. Tusome Project

This project has boomed in 2018. Kesho facilitators have educated standard three students; supporting them to improve their reading skills. By this, they are able to learn new vocabularies and thus able to express themselves well in English and Kiswahili.

  1. First Aid Training

This training is a life saving basic skill that we wish as many of our students and others to have. At Kesho, we want to save as well as enrich lives. 

  1. Leadership training

Some are born leaders, while others acquire the skills to become leaders. This year we have mentored some of our young generation on how to become a good leader. Encouraging  them to take part in leadership activities in school and back at the community.

  1. Sports Day

Work without play makes Jack a dull boy and that is why this year we decided to have a sports day where children had an opportunity to showcase their talents. We took note of these talents and are working in the best way possible to nurture them for the rest of the year and moving into 2019.

  1. Career Day

We all have people we look up to in life and wish to be like them in future. We have brought professionals to our career day, asking them to talk to our students on their careers and how our students can progress themselves. This motivates them to work harder.

  1. Malala Documentary

Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani female activist and Nobel peace prizewinner who fights for girls’ rights. We showed her documentary to our children to inspire them to fight for their rights, erase community’s myths and misconceptions and acquire moral values.

  1. Safe Guarding

We sensitised children, parents and community at large on the importance of having a safer environment. Children are able to help prevent bullying in schools or radicalisation and neglect. At Kesho we put children first. Everyone at Kesho also went on a team building activity, building trust and cohesion among staff members.

As we move into the second half of the year, we approach the August holidays. Here we will deliver activities to engage primary, secondary students and youth on a diverse range of topics.

10. Whats next for 2018?

Join us this August and walk our talk in ensuring that children don’t stay idle at home but acquire life-based skills and grow morally in to being very important people in the society!
