Thank you for taking the time to read our application! Out of the 84% of SAT graduates you mentioned, 41% are working full-time and another 11% are both working and studying part-time. Our evaluations of student occupation are normally performed at a municipal level in order to assess context-specific future demand and needs. In a different 2016 study, we found that 65% of SAT youth in one community and 36% in another were currently engaged in agri-business. In regards to attrition levels, we consider SAT (19%) to be a considerable success over the national rural average of 40%. Nonetheless, SAT’s tutors often have long standing ties with the communities from which they are recruited and teach. They develop a close rapport with at-risk students and their families by performing house-visits, follow-ups, and tracking their progress. Hope this helps! Thanks again.
Thank you for the positive feedback! Out of the 84% of SAT graduates you mentioned, 41% are working full-time and another 11% are both working and studying part-time. In addition to this, a recent 2016 study reported that 160 students are actively benefiting from the income-generating ventures they created within the SAT program. We are hopeful to keep helping rural youth and their families to lift themselves out of poverty. Thanks again!
