Yes Programme.

The Youth Education Support Programme (YES) is a two-part program designed to help high school graduates become agents of change within their community while also offering assistance to vulnerable primary schools (elementary schools) in the region. Volunteers are mentored and then placed at local primary schools where they teach classes, facilitate workshops, offer tutoring, and help address absenteeism and student drop outs.   Many elementary schools in East Pokot are severely under resourced and under staffed. The students who attend these schools face a multitude of challenges as they try to stay in school, pass their exams, and eventually make it to high school. The dropout rates in the area are very high due to poverty related issues, family migration, early marriage, and child labor. Our hope is that the YES Program participants will be great role models for these younger students and be able to offer a crucial support role in their lives. This program requires funding as the participants are paid a small stipend to assist with their living cost.
