OUR GRADUATES

Ready for life.

The education system of Kenya is different than that of the US and other countries.  Students are required to take national exams (KCPE) after Standard 8 (8th grade).  These are very important and decide whether a student is qualified to go on to high school.  Failing this exam can be devastating as it can close all doors to getting high education.

Numerous TPS students, after scoring well on this KCPE,  have been able to earn scholarships enabling them to attend prestigious high schools around the country.

After completing high school, students take another national exam (KCSE).  This grueling exam covers all four years of high school and takes 2 ½ weeks to complete.  It is a very difficult exam and few are able to qualify for university level continuing education.

If a student does not qualify for university, he/she can study for a lower level certificate level document.  Above this, is a diploma level.  Once completing the diploma level, many qualify for university level which then awards degrees.

Our TSS graduates have found lives beyond high school at all the above levels.

One student has set up a green grocer shop in Korr – the first of its kind.  He is doing a good business in an area where the closest fresh foods were a 3 hour shopping trip away.

Another student has a small butchery he runs in Korr.

Several students have received diplomas.  Repeatedly Tirrim gets reports from these students that the teachers are amazed at their skills and their ability to process information.  In addition, these students are repeatedly at the top of their classes.  We are proud of them.

Tirrim currently has a number of students at the university level.  Once again, we see these students excelling in their classes.  Some who have qualified for university  are still searching for funding so they can continue on.
