During February we made our customary visit to Dabaso School and were delighted to see and hear about the continuing progress which is being made thanks to the hard work by all the school community.

Esther Kutto (Head Teacher) was very pleased to advise us that the ‘Mean Score’ following the end of academic year examinations for Standard (Year) 1 – 7 inclusive during November last year had increased by sixteen points, which is a significant improvement. Eight Standard 8 (final year of primary education) students had secured places at National Schools, which is the top level of secondary school in Kenya. Equally important was the fact that more parents/carers are involved in the education of the children as they attend meetings and participate as requested. This is a huge step forward as many children originate from families who have not had the benefit of an education.
