Year in Review

It has been another great year for the Suba Lakers on and off the field!

Here are the 2013 highlights:

Off the Field Success

- Working with 20 students in primary school and 40 students in secondary school impacting them physically, socially, academically and spiritually.

- 28 of the 29 girls in the club who have sat National Exams in 8th Grade over the past three years are continuing their education in high school.
- In November, 5 more of our girls took their National Eighth Grade Exams and are waiting for their results.

- Four 8th Grade Girls attended a week-long Teen Empowerment and Life Skills Camp.
