Get Up Senior Retreat Brings Together Secondary and Post-Secondary Students

Female Umoja students in secondary school spent a few days in Nakuru for the Girls Empowerment Team retreat. They divided into groups (named after notable universities, such as Oxford, Harvard and Yale) and spent time with mentors, postsecondary students and community leaders. The retreat emphasizes healthy relationships and goal setting and is an awesome opportunity for members of the Umoja family to spend time together, get inspired and make memories!

Madame Alice Osango talks with the Oxford group.
