The blending of Invictus Institute with the projects of Village Book Builders has been ongoing for a few months. Noah’s Ark Academy will be changing to Google Meets platform soon with the mentors. Due to COVID -19, the school has been closed and will not open until at least until 2021. In the meantime, mentors have resumed lessons with the students that are available and come to the school for their lessons while following Covid19 requirements. The mentors have been very excited and pleased to be back with their smiling students. This is a very important time when mentors can maintain their relationship with students, help students continue to work on their school studies, and practice their English. Our title as tutors has changed to Mentors as we have become part of the Village Book Builders team.

There is a current project of building improvements for the Noah’s Ark Academy structure. This is a requirement of the Ministry of Education, the school must upgrade their facility. Tutors are hearing “Happy Hammering” as the project work is happening. We are joyful and appreciative for the donations that have made this possible.
We still need help raising money for the project and for a generator and internet/fuel for 2020.

The website interesteng.org is an online magazine by English language learners, published by Jeannie, one of our Invictus Institute tutors. Hawkins, one of the Noah’s Ark students, has written two articles for the magazine, the first article “All about lizards” was published in the October 2019 edition, the second article “All about the hyrax” was published in the November edition. Both articles are informative about these animals found in Kenya. Hawkins is thirteen years old and in the 8th Standard class. The magazine has received “fan mail” for Hawkins about his articles and his knowledge of the lizard and the hyrax.
The interesteng.org articles are written by English learners all over the world and provide some insight into the world of our learners. The opportunity for learners to share their culture and ideas and feel a real sense of accomplishment is very special for them. Congratulations to Hawkins for becoming Noah’s Ark first published author in this online magazine and watch for more articles from this author!!
Readers may access the magazine on http://www.interesteng.org. Click on the month tabs to review the articles for that month. Tutors are welcome to share the articles with their students!! There are many resources for students and tutors on the magazine site .
