2017 Kajiado Home Visit
As part of the recruitment process, HBEF does beneficiary home visits to ascertain that the students are indeed from needy backgrounds as that is one of the key issues the organization looks at when seeking to recruit students each year.
Last week, 3 HBEF staff visited Olentoko Village in Kajiado County where Philip Surumen one of our Form 1 students is from. He joined Olkejuado High School and we look forward to meeting him during the first monitoring visit to hear his experience in secondary school.
The pictures are taken in the family homestead; Philip's mother - Maria Surumen, HBEF Executive Director - Sarah, Philip's primary Headteacher - Mr. Daniel Teeka and one of the younger children pose for a photo at the end of the interview.
Philip emerged the top pupil in his school and the whole district.
