Improve Livelihoods of 225 HIV-affected families

The project is ongoing though we did not manage to fund-raise enough funds required for installing rope and washer techniques as earlier reported. We are still fundraising for that and we hope we will at least manage to have 2 pumps installed by February next year. Luckily it has been raining in most areas which mean that their kitchen gardens are still green with a lot of vegetables and other crops. We were able to provide them with more seeds and seedlings and they have already planted them. Most of them have learnt the techniques of seed saving and value addition they have been learning a lot from the neighboring youth polytechnics on agribusiness, animal husbandry and cottage industry. This is one of the projects that really picked very well and supported by many people in the community. We thank all those who have contributed for the success of this project and we look forward for more achievements.

Help Educate 330 Mukinyai School Orphans, Kenya

In Mukinyai we have not done much in the previous period but we are hoping to continue raising funds for the project. We have been informed that some of the orphans beneficiaries were candidates this year and they did their final primary examination last week and their guardians had requested the school to help them get sponsors for these pupils to enable them continue with secondary education next year. We are not in a position of promising them anything at the moment but we have suggested to them to approach Equity Bank of Kenya which normally provides scholarships to the needy students those who score 350/500 marks in the final exams. We hope they will sponsor some of these pupils. We are still considering supporting the rest but this will only depend on the results of our fundraising.
We have been conducting monitoring and evaluation for the chicken and rabbits project and we are happy to report that the progress is good. Some of the families have really achieved on this and they have been able to provide the most basic needs for the children. We are happy that this has resulted to improved livelihoods. We will continue fundraising for this project and we believe we will support more needy families. We thank all our partners and well-wishers.

Protect 1800 people on Kokwa Island from Malaria

We are happy to report the good news that Kokwa clinic is now under construction and the community is very happy for these developments and quick action of their leaders. The construction work has already started and the location of the clinic is quite good as the whole community will access the facility with ease and it will not be affected by flooding of the lake. In early September this year more well-wishers have heard the cry of this poor community and they have tried to support in various ways. School girls form the Island received sanitary towels donated through our partners in USA. They were very happy as these sanitary towels can be recycled without affecting the health of the girls. We conducted training on how to use them and how to clean them to ensure that their hygiene improved and not affected by the recycled pads. We have conducted follow –ups with the girls to evaluate how useful the pads are in terms of comfort, hygiene and availability. The girls have reported that the pads are very useful and they are now sure that they will have them during time of needs without incurring expenses. We thank all our well wishers for this very important support.
We are also trying to conduct trainings within the community on health and hygiene in order to reduce some obvious health cases. This has been taken positively and the community is willing to participate in many more and they are actually practicing after the trainings.
We have continued to support 2 patients who had been referred to Nakuru general hospital for further medication. We have been providing transport from the Island to Nakuru and also covering the medical bills. The patients are still going for appointments and we are optimistic the situation will improve. We have been doing all this with support from well wishers and our partner. We thank them for their generous support to our needy communities.
