Girls’ Program Summer Breaks

Girls’ Program Summer Breaks

June marked the middle of the second term for the Kenyan girls’ academic calendar, and the end of the first term for the Tanzanian girls.

The Kenyan girls had a mid-term short break between June 27 and July 1 (pictured below). Daniel Salau reported that the girls, “have developed a good attitude and are increasingly aware that so much is expected of them. They are willing and ready to take up the challenge.”

The academic calendar in Tanzanian schools is changing, so the Tanzanian girls had a break from June 22 through July 8, and will break again for another two weeks in mid-August to pave way for the national census. The girls are adapting to the changes with the assistance of program leaders, and are currently back in school.
