Happy birthday, Teach a Child – Africa!
2017 visit to Bishop Okoth Mbaga Girls Secondary School
In December 2017, Teach a Child – Africa (TaC) celebrated its tenth anniversary.
Ten years ago, TaC began to fund its first two students, Mary and Nancy, through secondary school. Mary has since graduated to become a web developer and designer, while Nancy went on to university to become our first graduate. Today, we support 82 students and 68 students have already completed secondary school with TaC assisstance. More than that, nearly all our students receive good results at school – 80% of out former beneficiaries have secured a place at university.
We are immensely proud of what all our students have achieved!
Anisha and Emily hard at work on the publication.
To mark the anniversary, TaC has put together a new publication covering what we do and why we do it. We’re grateful to interns Anisha and Emily from the University of Oxford, who were responsible for editing and writing much of the publication, and to PSA for providing the office facilities. The booklet discusses and analyses the importance of education for Kenyan children, as well as putting the spotlight on some of our alumni and staff, giving them a chance to voice their thoughts and ideas on TaC’s work.
Here’s to the next ten years of helping children fulfil their academic potential and make for themselves and their communities a better life.
