Mary went  successfully through the second term of school. She is at home for Mid year holidays. She says there was alot of competion during the term, but she managed to retain her second position though slightly having been edged from postion 1 to 2 by her closest competitor.

She is happy staying with her Auntie during holidays and catching up with her cousins who are also in other schools.

Schools will be oppened in 4th of september . She cannot wait to be in school again. This will be her last term in the second grade and so very important that she improves her grade marks.

The school has organised for an academic day in 13th September 2013. CRk staff will  visit Mary in school to discuss with teachers on her performance and how best to support her during this final term of her 2nd grade.

CRK is very grateful to all for supporting and giving Mary a chance to pursue her dreams .

Happy to be Home

The children at Liyavo have recently spent a month away from school for the holidays in April. They spent their time visiting members of their extended family and enjoying their freedom. Their reports showed improvement in performance for the majority the children so we are very happy. They are all now back in school for the second term. We would like to thank all of our GlobalGiving donors for assisting us in providing care for our children and ensuring that we can help them to attend school and lead happy lives. With donations we have received from a GG donor who has recently visited us in Kitale we are currently working with local suppliers to purchase a complete set of up-to-date primary school text books, at a discounted rate, for our children to use when they are studying at home. The same donor has also raised funds for playground equipment. The children have been making the most of the new roundabout and swing set and we hope that a see-saw will arrive soon (please see new pictures). This at Liyavo, year we have five candidates in standard 8. This is the last year in of primary school Kenya and the students sit their Kenya Certificate of Education (KCPE) exams in November. Our students are already looking forward nervously and will start attending extra classes at the weekends with a volunteer teacher to help give them a boost in their preparation. The grade they achieve at the end of the year will not only determine whether they go to secondary school or a vocational training alternative, but also which high school they will attend. In the last three months we have successfully reintegrated 17 children with their families. This is the ultimate goal that CRK has for all the children we work with. Liyavo provides a long term home for those children who require extra support and a longer time interval for this move. Each of the children receives regular visits to ensure that they have settled in, are attending school and are well supported by their families. The children were very happy to be rejoining their families.

Do You know that you put a smile on Faces of children and hope for a bright future ?

Yes like other children their age our children celebrated and enjoyed chrismas holidays i must actually take the opportunity to thank you for making that happen by the donations you gave us.

January came after the new year celebations it was time again for children to return to school. We are glad that one our boys Jacob Obwaku who did his primary final examinations passed very well and will be joining Secondary school.

We have continued with our activities as always 60 children went on with their primary school classes 3 in secondary school reported.

As we are about to vote briefly our children will not be in school, we are hoping that our elections will be peaceful and should be able to resume with our daily routine.

We are currently also changing our home strategy to incorporate the family set up where children will be attached to parents as we move away from institutionalization. This is a change we hope will be operational before the year ends.

We continue to call upon you to support us especially in the March 13 event that will be marching funds by Global giving up to 30%.

We again thank you for helping us help children we assure you that every donations can be vouched for value.
