Friends of Dago in collaboration with our good friends are making major change in education for the community. Dago primary school has over 350 students.
Dago Local Primary School
Dago primary school has more than 350 students from Grades 1 to 8. Most of the students are from the community with some of them from the neighboring communities. We strive to support the school with school supplies for the students, ensure they have uniforms and shoes once a year. We call the project “back project for students.”
Early Childhood Education
Through friends of Dago initiatives, we built an early childhood education classroom for the children ages 3 to 7 years. This initiative is very important, because we never had very productive graduation rate for our children in Dago school. We identify the need for pre-school opportunities. With the pioneering class now in 1st, grade, we hope we will have a better performance for the children once they get to 8thgrade.
Currently we have 4 teachers working full time in this program with over 80 students registered.
Primary Boarding Scholarship
Through our good friends, Dago children also benefit from a primary school scholarship program. The students are sent to a private school in Kilgoris. Sirau Aulo has seen over 50 students from Dago. We have had more than 15 graduate and join very prestigious high schools as well.
Currently we have 27 students in the program and are doing very well.
High School Scholarship
We are working with partners to provide scholarships to our students for high school. We don’t want any kid to miss going to high school. We have sent over 60 students to high school since 2008, most of them are currently in college studying various disciplines.Currently we have 29 students in high school benefiting from the scholarship funding from our kind friends and partners.
