The whole town has been a bee-hive of activity as parents and their children are busy shopping for back to school supplies. The beginning of the year is always hectic for parents. The students who sat for the end of primary examinations in November are now ready for Secondary School; there are books, uniform, beddings and other school supplies that need to be bought.

We visited the girls at school today; they are busy with exams. One of the girls finished her exams today, but the other two will finish on Friday afternoon before leaving for home on the 22nd. One will go ahead of them on the 21st as she finishes her exams earlier. The girls asked that I pass on their regards to Valvisions and their gratitude for the school supplies and pocket money.

The seminar we held in Meru was a huge success. We had a turnout of 64 girls on the first day and closed the seminar with the same number. The topics prepared were appropriate for the age group, and we had facilitators who did a very good job helping the girls break down the information.

It rained heavily but that did not deter the girls from coming in early every morning for the meetings. Some walked from very far away villages. The girls were shy to ask questions on the first day and giggled away when certain words were used.
