Happy New Year!

Happy 2017 to all our stakeholders!

At HBEF we have been well and busy keeping in line with the new calendar from the Ministry of Education. 2016 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education results were released early December and thus the 2017 recruitment process needed to shift to accomodate the new changes and to ensure that the Beneficiaries selected were able to join their new schools as of 7th January 2017! Below are pictures of some of the beneficiaries receiving their Form 1 first term fees at the HBEF offices in Nairobi.
