HOPE School students enjoyed and evening of fellowship, food and inspiration at tonight the the Luke Hotel in Nairobi. 39 students were in attendance and were hosted by Paul Odour and Charles & Darlene Coulston. After dinner, students were awarded Certificates of Completion for past courses. This was the first celebration gathering where we invited students to make presentations and offer words of encouragement and inspiration to the group. Maureen Kaderi, Jacob Ogodo and Monicah Mureithi came with prepared speeches and spoke to the gathering.
Students said that they enjoyed the fellowship very much. This celebration was the first time students in Cohort 1 had a chance to meet and welcome the new students in Cohort 2 in person. The evening was filled with excitement. Students commented that these face to face gatherings provide a lot of motivation and inspiration to keep engaged in their studies online. We are all thankful to the donors who make evenings like tonight possible.
