Kenya has an extremely strong culture of encouraging and supporting education and educational advancement of their youth. An element of that commitment is a tradition of holding a prayer day before taking the national exams. In addition to holding a pre-primary graduation last week, we held a prayer day for 6th and 8th graders who are beginning to take national exams in the days and weeks ahead. It is a multi-week process: taking the exams and a serious undertaking by students, families and the nation as a whole. Please keep our students in mind during the next several weeks. They are investing much mental and social energy in this endeavor and their success on the exams has a significant bearing on their future paths.
