This week, the WISER girls received the results of the KCSE, Kenya’s national examination for high school students, and exceeded all expectations. Here’s how well WISER’s pioneering class of girls performed:
100% of WISER girls (28) passed their exams
61% of WISER girls (17) qualified for university with 13 receiving full scholarships
32% of WISER girls (9) qualified for diploma qualification
7% of WISER girls (2) qualified for certificate course qualification
To put this in perspective, in the last 20 years, no girl has continued onto university from Muhuru Bay. History has now been changed forever. When the girls learned about their results, they leapt from their chairs. Together with the WISER staff, they embarked on a 2-mile parade down to the village center where community members joined their ranks – singing, dancing, living and being WISER!

After the release of the academic results, WISER is now ranked among the Top 100 Private Secondary Schools (for girls and boys) in all of Kenya, ranking No. 1 in Migori County.
