Increase of teachers: MWCT employed three more teachers – two at Iltilal secondary school and one at Neiti primary school. These are the first MWCT teachers at both these schools.
The Ilitilal primary school end-of-term exams were financially supported by MWCT, which bought and transported the exam papers to the school.
11% increase in MWCT-supported schools’ enrolment (1027 more students), due to MWCT supporting more schools.
Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) performance for the scholarship program supported students was impressive. Statistics show girls performed better than boys. Asuptah Sumeita, a beneficiary of the program, scored A from Moi Girls High School, Eldoret.

Shortage of teachers throughout the ranch, even as we have hired three more.
School dropouts, although decreased from previous quarters, are still an issue. Early marriages and teenage pregnancies are the major causes. MWCT will start collecting data on the dropout rate next quarter. Langata primary school was hit the hardest.
Shortage of classrooms. Some schools are forced to divide their classes into shifts, having one shift come to school in the morning and the other in the afternoon.
