WORKING IN FAITH

Mzesa excited kids
Mzesa excited kids

The term started with a lot of confusion and tension with election fear and fever. We have past through a lot of troubles, but by faith we have managed to come out of this. We have managed to get our last year’s pupils who passed examinations admitted in secondary schools.  We have received more kids and have managed to buy them school uniforms.

We have bought more books and writing materials for every pupil.  We sincerely thank everyone who have contributed to make all these possible.  We have done so much, despite these fears. We kept all children together, clothed them and fed them without fear.

We thank you so much for your kind donations and pray that you continue helping these kids to get to a level where they can do examinations and move to the upper level.

Thank you very much and may God richly bless you.

EXCITING TERM

 

This  year started with a lot of events and excitements as we had ordered School Uniforms for all children who had no uniform IN December 2012, before we closed the school.  In January 2013, these uniforms were delivered and all who had no uniforms were supplied with one pair each.  This was realized because of kind hearts of our donors who have made these kids very proud.  THANK YOU!

Also the kids who were in the Nursery Class last year graduated to Pre-School and Class One (1) this term (2013).  Again, our long time prayers were that we teach these kids up-to Class 8 without them running back to their usual dump-sites.  Last year we had 11 children who sat for Std 8 (Kenya Primary School Examinations) and we are happy to let our friends and donors know that out of 11 children, we had 7 kids who passed this examination.  They have to join Form One (1) this year.  We have tried all we could to see that this kids  join Secondary Schools.   With your help, we have managed to pay the First Term school fees for them.  We are praying that we shall get more assistance so that we continue paying their Secondary School fees.

We also have 4 children who failed these exams.  We are planning to give them some sort of training if we can get assistance from our well-wishers, donors and friends so that they learn and empower themselves to sustain their future.  We have also constructed a reasonable Library to secure their  books.  

We  sincerely that all our well-wishers and donors out there.   We pray  for  God to open blessings  to  YOU  so that  YOU can be  a blessing to these children who dearly depend on YOU.

God bless you,

GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS

Last term of this year has been like "a dream come true" at this School.  Since we started this project, everyone at the School and the community at large has been  praying that these kids should at least be patient and do Std 8 examinations.  And for sure, for the first time, we had 17 children, 9 girls and 8 boys who sat for Kenya Primary Education Examinations!  This is an achievement through our very hardworking teachers and the feeding programe, otherwise they would have gone back to the streets and dump-sites in search of food, drugs and prostitution.

Because of the assistance of donors, we have managed to purchase uniforms to all children who did not have any and bought more reading books, pencils, rulers and sanitary towels for our girls.  We have bought enough ARVs through your kind donations and have made an agreement with Soweto/Kayole Clinic to supply more throughout next year at our usual  subsdised cost.  We have ordered  100 pairs of shoes of different sizes for the kinds who have been walking on bare feet and I am sure they will  be excited to put on shoes when the School will open next year.

Next year, if God wishes, we are planning to build 3 more pit-latrines as the 2 we have are full and can infect our kids with cholera, etc.  We had our School Pastor with us when we were closing for Christmas holidays and he said "SURELY GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS" and sincerely God answered our prayers this year.

We are looking for 2013 as a challenging year because we have 17 children  (boys and girls) who have done exams and we  believe through your continuous kind donation, we shall have to create some sort of training for them so that they keep themselves busy  and not turn back to prostitution and drugs on the streets.  We sincerely thank  every donor so passionately.  May God richly bless you, your work, your  families and your entire life.  We pray that you will continue extending your kind hands towards these children so that they may learn and eventually be able to sustain themselves in life.

Once again, thank you and God bless you all and have a wonderful Christmas and a very successful 2013.
