Teenage girls give birth during National Examinations (KCSE)

National Examination in kenya has always been taken as a serious exercise. Candidates started their KCSE. Some teenage girls have so far given birth in different counties during the exercise.

There is this one who got caught up in labour in the exam room. She was rushed to hospital. The girls are still doing their exams as long as one is capable.

For those who are have more complications, the government has assured them that they will still be given the examinations the moment they are fine.

From this, we can guess what the long holiday that was brought about by the pandemic caused. This births are outcome of the long holiday experienced.

The government in conjunction with the Ministry of Education has made sure that all this girls are seating for their examinations. The hospitals where these girls are admitted have isolated a room for the purpose of examinations.

During the long holiday, counties recorded high number of girls who got pregnant. See this. Let’s protect our teenage girls from early pregnancy. See how.

This comes after the government has announced high number of teenagers who have been infected with HIV during the school holidays.

Candidates and teachers found participating in exam cheating ( KCSE)

It is one week since the Kenya Certificate Secondary Examinations started. The Ministry of Education had announced that any irregularities in the exam will be punishable.

In spite of this announcement, some candidates and businessmen have colluded to find ways to leak the papers. Students have been found with phones in the exam rooms which may have been used to cheat.

Some of the teachers who invigilate the exam have too forgotten their sense of integrity. They were caught helping the candidates in cheating. They were arrested and investigation in on going.

The Cabinet Secretary for Education, has emphasized that the exam papers have not leaked and they won’t. He urged the citizens to be careful of some criminals who are taking advantage of the situation and sell fake papers.

Online classes are back: Schools closed

It’s one week since the closure of schools. Our teenagers must be kept busy to make better use of the energy they have. For those in town, there is no land to till unlike the country side teenagers. No forest to send them to look after cattle. Lockdown locks them just inside the house. It is high time they get enrolled in online classes.

Kenya Secondary Schools Candidates start their National Examinations (KCSE)

After Four years, the students are ready to seat for their final examinations which will determine whether to proceed to universities or colleges.

The students have been going through hard times now that the pandemic has been here for about a year. Some have been affected mentally and emotionally making the students feel as if they are not ready for the exam.

The government has done all what it takes to cushion them. This is by providing counselors in schools who talk to the affected learners. Moreover, the teachers have been trained to handle learners with such problems.

Every learner is working extra hard to see that he or she pass their examinations.

We wish them success in their exams.

Best Tips on how to succeed- Ciscas

It is the nature of human to appreciate success when it knocks. Though somebody said...opportunity strikes only once…..it is everyone’s desire to enjoy it now and then, but mostly, it isn’t just a walk in the park. I loved a statement from one of the blogs I read recently that stated...if it was easy, everybody would be in it…this challenged me if not to inspire. Now I know that having tried is already an achievement. What you need is persistence as per this 10 Ways.. and also see this video on how to reach to your destiny

Is it true that money earned through hard ways is ‘sweeter’ than what you never struggled for?… I am not sure on this… Sometimes life is a bit unfair. One may work so hard yet success is negligible. However, that should not discourage one to move on. You never know what tomorrow has in store. So, keep moving as long as you don’t stop. Sometimes the speed doesn’t matter. If the snail managed to get into Noah’s Ark, play it cool, your destiny is definite, but you must keep it to the truck. As you can see here on Ways to success

What do I mean? Give yourself time to achieve what you want. If it is business or education, just go for it. There are some hurdles on the way, but they may be more of success than destruction. No matter how hard you try to jump over them, some need to be stepped on or knocked down to give you the way. Be patient…Rome was not built in a day…and a journey of hundred miles starts with a step. Keep going girl!..and that’s me!

The Pi Day (π)

Have you ever heard of the Pi Day? If not, you are not alone. I also got this from one of my friends in US. She explains it very well and I loved it! See what she says:

March 14 is Pi Day, an annual celebration of the mathematical constant pi (π), the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.The symbol was first used in mathematical calculations by Welsh mathematician William Jones and later it was popularized by Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler, who adopted it in 1737.However, the numerical relationship […]

Coronavirus vaccine arrives in kenya

The long awaited coronavirus vaccine is already here. As per my previous post, teachers and health workers will be in forefront to receive the vaccine. The process of vaccination has already kicked off.

The vaccine has been taken to a number of counties through out the country. Some people still feel that the vaccine is not safe while others see it as a blessing in disguise.

As stated by the Health Cabinet Secretary, the country is going through the third wave of the virus. He stated that, from the previous experience, this one seems to be tougher than before. The numbers have started rising raising a red flag and so he advised the citizens to be a bit careful and keep to the covid-19 regulations.

What is causing unrest in kenyan schools

The schools in kenya reopened on 4th January after a break of nine month. Learners have been having a hard time coping with the new normal of putting on the masks and maintaining social distance.

Some of the learners were affected by the pandemic in one way or the other. Not all learners were able to engage in online classes and so almost forgot everything they were taught before the coronavirus pandemic. Nine months is not a short without going through what one had covered previously.

Coming back to school, the learners having been going through mental challenges and some have been seen suffering from stress. This has caused a great harm to school. It has also been noted that, the long holiday exposed the learners to bad behaviours such as use of drugs. Others have found it difficult to adjust to the life of rules and regulations as they were used to live a life of freedom. Recently, a boy killed a teacher just because of being asked why he was late for classes.

The uncertainty and anxiety that is seen in schools indicates the kind of harm the pandemic has caused not only to economy but also to morals and values of our children. Learners have been burning schools living the parents to suffer more as they pay for the loses.

It’s unfortunate that this comes just a month to national exams. It seems that they feel they are not prepared enough to seat for their final year examinations.

Teachers have been advised of the ministry of education to be vigilant and note any form of distress from the learners. They are directed to give the child concerned the support he or she need. Where there is a need for a counselor, teachers should work with speed to help the child.

How are the learners coping with the new normal in your area? I would love to have a chat with you. Tell me more. You can also see other posts here.

Schools reopen in Kenya – Ciscasquapro

After a period of nine months since covid 19 struck, the school are opening again. Some of the private schools have closed permanently. These parents will be forced to take their children to public schools which are already swollen.

Some parents have lost jobs and business to covid 19 making it difficult to pay school fees in private schools. These too will take their children to public schools. Without no doubt, the congestion that will be experienced in public schools will make it difficult for covid 19 guidelines to be followed especially maintaining the social distance.

Of late, the rift valley lakes have been swelling causing havock to the neighbouring community where some schools have been submerged completely. Parents will have to look for new schools to take their children.

Teenagers and HIV virus – Ciscasquapro

The rise of teenage pregnancy has exposed the adolescent children to not only coronavirus but also HIV. The teenagers’ relationships have lured them to partying without adhering to morals and values of the society. The Unicef kenya had this to say:

COVID-19 puts adolescents at greater risk of acquiring or spreading HIV.

By Maniza Zaman, UNICEF Representative to Kenya, and UNAIDS Country Director Medhin Tsehaiu

Fishing in Homa Bay County

UNICEFKenya/AndrewBrown29 November 2020

This article first appeared in The Nation on November 29, 2020.

For young people in Kenya, the risks of COVID-19 stretch way beyond the effects of the virus itself. We believe that COVID-19 and the containment measures could be contributing to new spikes in adolescent HIV as evidenced by reduced access to essential HIV prevention services and along with other unintended consequences such as unintended pregnancy and sexual and gender-based violence.

With schools fully or partially closed, many children have been away from the protective environment of school for months. Families are facing financial hardship, food insecurity, stress and uncertainty. This creates the conditions for an increase in abuse, sexual violence in homes and communities and in transactional sex, which can lead to an increase in sexually transmitted infections including HIV and unintended pregnancies among adolescents. We can already see early signs of this – national helplines have reported a tenfold increase in reports on violence against girls and women since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak. A third of all crimes reported in the first month after the COVID-19 outbreak in Kenya were related to sexual violence.

UNICEF and UNAIDS are particularly concerned about the most vulnerable children in areas of Kenya that already have the highest rates of HIV. For example, in Homa Bay County, youth aged 15-24 contribute 13 per cent of the total number of HIV infections amongst 15-49-year olds in the County. The picture in other counties in the western and lake basin region is similar.

The consequences of a further rise in HIV could be wide-ranging. As well as causing serious health problems, HIV can lead to devastating emotional issues due to stigma and discrimination. And in a vicious circle, while COVID-19 puts adolescents at greater risk of acquiring or spreading HIV, people living with HIV are also at greater risk of severe COVID-19 infections that can lead to death, especially those who do not take medication regularly.

As the global AIDS epidemic continues, we need to act. Homa Bay County Government has commissioned research, carried out by LVCT Health and the Overseas Development Institute supported by UNICEF, to analyse the root causes of adolescent HIV, as well as teenage pregnancies. The findings of ‘Unintended pregnancies and HIV among adolescents and young people: A situation analysis of Homa Bay’, offer important local, regional and country-wide lessons.

Firstly, gender inequality is a major driver of HIV infections in adolescents. Girls often have little control in relationships or in the use of condoms and other forms of contraception. They may conduct transactional sex to secure food for their families. The report also highlights limited access to adolescent HIV services and inadequate quality comprehensive sexuality education in schools. Lastly, the report finds that vulnerable young people get caught up in risky behaviours and cultural practices such as ‘disco matanga’, that put them at risk of sexual exploitation, abuse and of acquiring HIV.

At this critical time, we must move quickly to address these issues in Homa Bay and nationwide. We need to see improved and budgeted programming, focusing on addressing harmful gender norms, as well as find channels to provide culturally and age-appropriate sexual reproductive health education for those in school and out-of-school. Increased support and training opportunities are also needed to give vulnerable girls alternatives to avoid early pregnancy and early marriage. And sensitization and positive engagement of their peers, the young boys, is also key to address the situation.

Finally, the health system can do more to be responsive to adolescents and young people through the provision of comprehensive services both at facility and community level. In sum, a multifaceted approach that stays true to the right to information and voice, tailored quality services and innovative social safety nets will be key in supporting vulnerable young women. 

Extraordinary change is possible when we work together. Since 2013, there has been a 66 per cent reduction in the rate of new HIV infections among 10 to 19-year-olds in Kenya, as the country followed an ambitious path to reduce new HIV infections to zero by 2030. During this period, Kenya has also led Africa in the rollout of pre-exposure prophylaxis, HIV self-testing and voluntary male medical circumcision.

Young people also need hope and opportunities to create a better future. This is why the UN is investing in expanding horizons for young people, as a key partner with the Government in the Generation Unlimited partnership. Through a multitude of programmes, the partnership aims to expand opportunities in education, training and employment for the young people in Kenya.

As part of the UN family in Kenya, UNICEF and UNAIDS will continue to work with the Government, partners and importantly adolescents themselves to accelerate steps and innovate to reduce HIV rates amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kenya’s adolescents are a vital national resource. Yet they currently face multiple threats to their health and wellbeing. Let us join hands in a deliberate effort to listen, understand and engage adolescents and young people in propelling a youth-centred response that offers them the best chance in life.

By Maniza Zaman, UNICEF Representative to Kenya, and UNAIDS Country Director Medhin Tsehaiu
