Barbara Tucker Cummings Guest House/Vocational School

Early in 2016 we completed a three-story facility on land contiguous to Amazing Grace.  A portion of the structure is the Barbara Tucker Cummings Guest House. In addition, space will be available for a vocational school as well as a "safe house" for our girls who are transitioning from life in the Home to life in the workplace.

New School Opened Monday, February 4, 2013

The new school, Amazing Grace Girls Secondary School of Awasi (AGISSA), opened in February 2013.

One of the amazing stories of the Home is that our girls who have been attending the local public school, Pawtang Primary, have done much better than the average students in Awasi and in Kenya. Typically, about 25% of the students taking the standardized national high school entrance exam (KCPE) score well enough to get into a secondary school. So far (mid-2015) 100% of our girls who have taken the KCPE are now in secondary school.

We know what we are doing at the Home is making the difference just based on the above-mentioned entrance exam data. We are convinced that we can expand the number of girls in the Awasi area who have the opportunity to go to high school by bringing AGISSA to the area.
