One Minute Update: Grade 8 Students

Early March 2022 — Daylight’s grade 8 students took their Kenya National examination (KCPE.) (All public primary school pupils sit for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination at the end of the school year in Standard eight.)

One of the Daylight teachers said:  “Our students told us that the exam was not hard, so they have good hope!”

The results are in — and the students from Daylight did very well again this year!   Daylight School celebrated with the 24 8th graders!

“They have raised the daylight flag high!”

The Daylight School students just began a new school year this month – we wish the outgoing grade 8 students the best, and look forward to following their H.S. journeys.


One Minute Update: A Note from Nathan Roberts

I have had the great joy of watching Collins grow up!

Michael Kimpur and I brought Collin to Daylight when he was 5 years old. 

Collin’s mom asked us to bring him to school because Collins only had one foot due to a raid on his village when he was a baby.

He is the child from the end of our book Poor Millionaires.

To read a letter from Collins that he now delivers fruit to sick people in the hospital really brings home how much of an impact we made.

Collins wants to be  a doctor and I am rooting for him!

If you want to help Collins and his classmates…Daylight School in Kenya could always use a gift of support.

And a special shout out to Becca and Andrew U and Emilie for joining Michael and I on that long drive trip to pick up Collins.
