Build School for 80Students in Arid Kachuru Kenya

In Kachiuru, we are happy to report that the feeding program has been going on very well with enough food to take them through the term. As earlier mentioned, this created a lot of impact in the school and in the community. The school enrolled many pupils after introducing the feeding program and they have now realized the pupils’ class performance also improved. Thank you all who supported this program. The school and the community at large are very happy as they have now accessed clean water they are now relieved as they were really suffering due to lack of this basic commodity. A borewhole has been dug in the school compound the community is now getting water from the school of which they feel very happy as they never thought at any time they will access clean water with much ease. The school will now improve on their school garden project and they will even learn more farming techniques in which pupils will share with their parents and the community. Since they had received some more money on water installation, they are now planning to use the money meant for water to construct more classrooms. This has been agreed on and next year 5 more classrooms will be constructed. Our partners from USA are considering providing sanitary towels and underwear for the girls in the school as they did in Kokwa Island Baringo. This will be a good initiative as this is also a challenge to the girls, teachers and parents. We hope our partners will succeed towards this direction and this will save our girls.
We are very happy for all these noble developments and we thank our partners, Kenyan government and all our well wishers for contributing towards all these development.

Protect 1800 people on Kokwa Island from Malaria

Finally Kokwa community has received good news from the government that they will receive funds which will support construction of a new dispensary. The plan is to build a dispensary with modern facilities that will enable the community receive most immediate services instead of referrals. Although this will take time as it is not clear yet when the money will be realized once implemented it will save the community most of the current challenges. This time round we have not received heavy rains in the highlands and this is an advantage to Kokwa community as the lake has not flooded to affect them. Our well wishers are willing to continue working with us to provide support to the community before they receive funds to implement the project. We used some of the money fundraised through global giving to support the most immediate health issues. We managed to provide transport and medical fee to 6 patients who were referred to Marigat district hospital for further medication. We also purchased some malaria drugs to be used in the temporary dispensary as malaria cases rose due to floods and this was a very important step since the dispensary had no more drugs as they were waiting to be released from the government. We thank all our well-wishers for their humble contributions to support this community to ensure healthy living. We are working hand to raise more funds as we realize they need more support each and every day.

Improve Livelihoods of 225 HIV-affected families

We have received some rains though not heavy as it was expected. Our project beneficiaries have taken the advantages of these rains and planted some crops in their demo plots. We are currently considering raising funds which will be used to install rope and washer pumps in beneficiaries’ homesteads. Rope and washer techniques is installing hand manual pump used to draw water from shallow wells a very simple and safe method. Most farmers have their shallow wells in their homestead and they use rope and container to draw water from the well. This method is very dangerous as it is very unsafe to the family members and livestock and the quality of the water is very poor thus causing water borne diseases. Rope and washer pump saves a lot of time and it is very safe in such a way that young children can draw water from the well easily and safely and water drawn is clean. We are considering this activity as the beneficiaries will use water for domestic purposes as well as irrigating their kitchen gardens during the dry spell thus ensuring that they will be food secure throughout and will have access to variety of vegetables in which they can sell the surplus.
We have also exposed our beneficiaries in youth polytechnics where they have leant various techniques of urban gardening and they have already started practicing them. This exposure has enabled them gain a lot of knowledge and skills not only on crop but also on livestock rearing. We intend to continue exposing them whenever we have the opportunities.
