Kakenya Center for Excellence is proud to have 100% of our alumnae currently enrolled in high schools around the county. Our Network for Excellence program provides continued support and guidance for these hard working and dedicated alumnae.
The purpose of the Network for Excellence is threefold:
The Network for Excellence is designed to focus on issues that girls will confront as high school students. It focuses on ongoing leadership skills training, advanced study skills, career development strategies, and goal setting. We also address adolescent social pressures , and continue education about sexuality, relationships, and peer pressure.
The mentoring aspect of the program entails both continued support for KCE graduates as they progress through high school as well as their development as mentors to younger girls attending KCE Boarding School.
The costs associated with attending high school in Kenya are a strain for many families and simply impossible for some to manage. As a key support to the most needy girls, we offer KCE scholarships, both whole and partial, for girls whose families are unable to cover the costs of their daughters’ ongoing education.
The Network for Excellence is an essential program that enables us to continue supporting our students as they leave the walls of our Boarding School and begin to pursue their dreams in a new setting. As each new group of KCE girls completes 8th grade and advances to secondary education, this Network will spread to more and more regions around the country, further expanding the impact of our empowerment work.
