Protect 1800 people on Kokwa Islad from Malaria

Kokwa clinic project is still on although at a slower pace due to various challenges in the region but the people involved are working towards solving the challenges affecting the project. As a result of supporting Kokwa girls with recyclable sanitary towels, we are happy to report that this initiative has created a lot of impacts to the beneficiaries’ parents and teachers. The beneficiaries have reported the usefulness of the pads as they are easy to clean and reuse as well as maintaining their hygiene and their health. To the parents, it has saved them a lot of money as they used to strain to get the pads for their girls and others completely did not manage to provide to their girls. This resulted to girls using old clothes and other materials which affected their hygiene and health and most of them could not attend school during their periods again affecting their class performance. Teachers reported that girls’ performance in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (K.C.P.E) results, girls performed better than boys. Not that we are neglecting boys but we appreciate the positive attitude by the community towards educating girl child and also the girls appreciating the importance of education in the long term, this will result to improved living standards for the community.
In this year our partners Friends of Kenya Schools and Wildlife (FKSW) brought more sanitary pads for the girls in this region not only to benefit Kokwa School but even other girls in the surrounding schools. The partnership has also decided to sponsor all pupils in this region who passed their last year’s national exams to continue with secondary education. For those who will not secure vacancy in secondary schools, they will be sponsored in youth polytechnics. On behalf of Kokwa community we thank all the well-wishers who have contributed in realization of all these achievements and we welcome their support for more achievements this year.

Improve Livelihoods of 225 HIV-affected families

So far we have not raised funds for our earlier initiative of installing rope and washer pumps at beneficiaries homestead for domestic use and irrigating their kitchen during the dry spell. We have not given up and we are working hard towards fundraising and we therefore request our well wishers to consider supporting this initiative. Currently the situation is not good as it has been very dry in most areas and some beneficiaries are not able to irrigate their kitchen gardens thus resulting to reduced vegetable production and in some areas no production at all. This is not only affecting their budget but also affecting their nutrition as many cannot afford to buy the supplement regularly. We are hoping the situation will improve soon and the beneficiaries will be in a position to reestablish their kitchen gardens. We are planning to provide them with seeds and organic fertilizer during the next planting season to enable them continue.

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.
