Another amazing careers day with 175 students and 53 professionals came to talk and learn from each other. This year we invited not only Kesho students but also an additional 50 students from 5 local secondary schools and a girls refuge centre.
The careers represented included vets and doctors, scientific research, journalism, architecture, engineering, banking, business, carpentry, agriculture, marine conservation, charity work, teaching, engineering and, most popular of all a pilot !
Kesho remains the only organisation locally, hosting an annual Careers Fair – it remains our most popular event for students – they love it! It’s really their only opportunity to find out what a wide range of career options are available to them and what academic requirements they need to enter the different professions. This knowledge broadens their choices and helps to generate new dreams and goals.
Our Motto – Live life with Play, Passion and Purpose.
The resource centres have been crowded out this week, with barely a chair to spare (even our poor financial auditor had to stand half the day!). Being the first week of the school holidays, most of the 313 children we now support, have visited to talk to us about their first term at, or back at, school as well as to use our facilities to study, play, read and be among friends.
The younger children are making glittery easter cards and the mums found a small corner on thursday to continue with their “merry-go-round” saving plan before going on a visit to a demonstration garden to learn new, low cost, methods of planting and growing food; the fourth in their five part series of workshops being run through Scope International.
It doesn’t stop…saturday morning, the first year secondary students have their induction day and next week there’s even more to entice and enrich our students…
Tuesday 23rd April – pre-careers day seminar
