Fourteen of the girls who have been attending the tailoring training class have been attending as boarding students, this has posed great challenges for us because we were not very well prepared to provide boarding facilities to the students, however the fact that these students did not have relatives in Kapenguria to host them caused us to provide hosting for them in our own homes. This has brought with it challenges some of which we hope to deal with by creating a boarding facility at our training center that can provide housing and boarding services to the marginalized women and girls from the lowland areas of West Pokot who enroll in the program. This term alone we need at least 10 double decker beds and closets for the girls dormitory and next year we will be needing 10 more of these beds and closets because we project that some of the girls who will be enrolling for the catering class will also be coming in from far places and will be attending as boarding students.
