St. Elizabeth School had its grand opening!

Thank you very much to all those who have supported the St Elizabeth’s school through SeeYourImpact. On behalf of the St Elizabeth girls, we are extremely grateful to you for your investment in their future. We spent two days visiting the St Elizabeth’s Secondary School at the end of May, and attended the official grand opening of the classrooms and dormitory.


The new classroom block (five classrooms) is completed and classes are currently being held there. The new dormitory for the boarding students is also completed, as well as showers, latrines and a water tank for clean water that is piped to the school from a water system that was completed last summer (the girls were previously using unclean water from a nearby stream bed).


The administration building, teacher offices and housing are still under construction. Ground will soon be broken on the library/ computer lab, kitchen/dining hall, and a new rescue center for girls who have fled FGM and early marriage. The girls are absolutely thrilled with the new school and welcomed us with much singing and dancing. They seem to be really thriving, and are very excited about the opportunity for a secondary education. It was wonderful to see and hear about the hope they now have for their futures.
