Exams – The girls are just one day away from the end of Term 2 exams – marking the end of Daraja’s eighth term! They will be heading home in one week; the Form 1 and 2 girls will be away until the beginning of September but the Form 1 students will come back early for extra tuition to help them prepare for next year’s KCSE exam.

Welcome back! – Jason’s mom and dad, Karen and Jack Doherty, arrived on campus yesterday afternoon. The students were writing exams when they pulled in but there was no shortage of hugs once everyone was reunited!

HIV/AIDS education – Volunteer Maggie Gaughran will be wrapping up the girls’ HIV/AIDS and family planning lessons this week. She has been training the girls to become leaders in HIV/AIDS awareness in their communities and to be comfortable sharing this important information with their peers – just in time for their term break at home.
