This week students and their families came together to celebrate the achievements of the S.M.I.L.E-ing Boys Project. Twelve KAA students took part in the project run by artist Kay Rufai last summer. Each of the boys benefitted from weekly group mentor sessions where they discussed their lived experiences and how best to navigate through their future.
On Monday, the students invited their friends and family to see the final portraits and reflect on the progress that they have made. It was an incredibly positive celebration and KAA is thankful to Kay for leading the project, and the KAA Intrepidus Trust for making it possible!
