Summary

Kenya’s education system is based off the British education system. This means that most secondary (high school) students spend very long days at school, with many waking up at 4 am to do their preps before classes begin at 6 am. Between their morning lessons, lunch break, afternoon lessons, evening preps, and evening class, some of the students don’t get home until 7 or 8 pm. From there, many of them have to attend to farm work, help around the house, or prepare meals before they can go and study, then head to bed before getting up at 4 am the following morning. The typical school day for a secondary school student in Kenya is anything but easy. Many students find it difficult to keep up in school due to long days and full schedules.

Solution

The Invictus Initiative is addressing this problem by offering study skill seminars to help students discuss their daily challenges, develop and implement new study skills into their busy schedules, and set healthy goals for a better future.

Long-Term Impact

The ultimate goal of this project is to help students improve their school performance over time and empower them with the resources they need to set their own trajectory in life.

Status

Initiated in 2014 and currently ongoing.
