This past November we had 10 children complete their last year of secondary school (S 6). This is memorable not only for the record number of children graduating but something else very exciting. In February, we got news that all 10 children passed the national exam! This is a huge accomplishment especially because our children had interruption in their schooling when they were young due to civil conflict. Over the years, they worked very hard studying and have overcome many obstacles. They are very proud of themselves as are we. We had cupcakes to celebrate the occasion.
The National Exam is a very challenging exam and many children do not pass. Passing the exam does not guarantee a child can go onto university but it’s a great milestone in their lives. In July, we will find out which children are eligible for university. Unfortunately, the Imbabazi does not have the resources to pay university tuition. Our children are able to continue on to university through generous sponsorships from people like you. For more information on sponsoring university tuition for one of our children please contact Jeff Ramsey. firstname.lastname@example.org
