Kenya Education Fund a Kenyan based NGO provides five-year scholarships to financially challenged and academically gifted children in Kenya held a workshop for 407 students in form one and form two . The workshop focused on a variety of topics aimed at helping the students navigate their teenage years and prepare for a successful future.
The workshop covered a range of important topics including reproductive health, stress management, effective communication, academic guidance, self-awareness, and character development. These topics were chosen specifically to benefit students in this age group, as they face a variety of challenges during this stage of their lives.
Reproductive health education is essential for young people to make informed decisions about their bodies and their future. Stress management is important for academic success and overall well-being, as stress can negatively impact mental health and academic performance. Effective communication skills are essential for building strong relationships, succeeding in school and in the workplace, and advocating for oneself.
Academic guidance helps students to identify their strengths and weaknesses, set goals, and develop study skills that will help them succeed academically. Self-awareness is important for personal growth and development, as it helps individuals understand their own emotions and motivations, and make positive changes in their lives. Character development focuses on building positive traits such as honesty, responsibility, and respect for others, which are essential for success in all areas of life.
KEF believes that by providing these workshops and scholarships, they can help bright and financially challenged students in Kenya overcome the obstacles they face, and achieve their full potential.
