This summer, the WISER team will be celebrating 5 years of WISER graduations – and we’re bringing that celebration all the way from Kenya to cities across the United States.
This May, 32 girls will graduate from the WISER Girls Secondary School and become the 5th graduating class in WISER’s history. In support of this anniversary, WISER champions across the US will host graduation celebrations with their friends and family this summer. We’re very proud of our graduates and excited for our global WISER family to celebrate their success with us!
In a region where only 7% of girls finish high school, graduating is no small feat. And the WISER girls aren’t stopping with graduation. Over the years, 100% of WISER students have finished high school and 90% have gone on to college or university. Our fifth class of graduates, celebrating this year, is particularly special. Students in this class earned full university scholarships at double the national rate in Kenya and were nearly twice as likely to qualify for college programs as compared to their peers nationally. These girls will become our latest alumni, joining a wave of powerful young women ready to drive change in their communities. They serve as role models and a source of inspiration for hundreds of girls who aspire to be in their shoes.
We think this is something worth celebrating – want to join us?
We’ll provide the materials and talking points for the celebration — to host, all you have to do is pick a location (it could be your house, your apartment or your favorite park, restaurant, or bar), invite friends, family members, or coworkers, and celebrate as you raise a glass to the WISER girls! It’s really that easy.
