Albert Masha Class of 2013
My name is Albert Masha Alex, a sixteen year old boy. I come from Vijiweni village.
My best subjects are Science, Math and English. I scored 336 on the KCPE exam and was given a place at Sokoke Secondary School near the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest. Because of my high score and background, I was given a sponsorship through the Kenya Education Fund.
My strengths are in football, basketball, handball, volleyball and acrobatic. I do all of these during my leisure time.
I enjoy eating Pilau, Ugali and beans, Chapati and Githeri.
I am an outgoing and self-driven boy.

Mary Okello Atieno teaches grades 4, 7, and 8. She has been teaching for 5 years and is married to fellow teacher Joseph Nyaga.
Madam Mary and the Debate Club
Madam Mary founded our debate club to promote language and give the students a chance to expand on what they learn in class. Students use the themes and vocabulary taught in the school to assist in debate design. The club has 30 members and frequently presents in front of the entire school. They also participate in inter-school competitions.
Our teaching staff is focusing on our math and science curriculum to raise our overall test scores and are looking for additional funds to expand test prep resources for students.
We want to share the exciting work and progress being made in Kenya as the EAC embarks on our 13th year.
We are doing more with less; making steady progress on our path to sustainability. This includes partnering with local government and non-governmental organizations, starting income generation projects, and reducing overhead. Your support makes it possible.
Together, our commitment delivering high quality education and health programming grows stronger each year.
This year the health team continued their community and school health education:
empowering community groups in economics and health
encouraging health education through theme days
partnering with government Community Health Workers
helping to train and identify the disabled residents in the community
starting income-generating projects to support health programs
Our primary school health education curriculum culminates each year in “Stay Alive Day”, a celebration of songs, poems, and skits about HIV/AIDS prevention. This year’s theme was “A life without drugs is cool!” and it was a huge success!
The EAC works with a diverse cross-section of the community, including:
women who care for orphans and vulnerable children
the Takaungu Beach Management Unit (fishing group)
the Takaungu Sewing Cooperative
a women's group that grows chili peppers
motorcycle taxi drivers
Example: This year, the Beach Management Unit broke ground on a cold storage building (refrigeration project), using funds from a grant written with help from the EAC. This allows the fishermen to store their catch and sell it when they can get higher prices.
The health team is working hard to build small businesses that will help fund future health programming (a great example of how the EAC continues to do more with less!) This year, the health team launched a chicken rearing project and began gardens built in burlap sacks.
