FACING CHALLENGES

 

During this quarter, there were many challenges which really needed courage.   Many children needed uniforms and games kits.  Teachers  had to work extra hours in order to coach our Std 8  pupils who are preparing for  Kenya Primary examination at the end of this year.   Since we have registered with MYSA,  our Games teachers (Christine and  Richard) had to work hard to see that children have to go to the field when games time is allocated so that they participate in all games and football. All these needed teachers devotion in order to accomplish these.

We had visitors from Detol Company who gave us lectures on hygiene.  and distributed  DETOL SOAPS to all children and teachers.

We also received visitors from OXFORD PUBLISHERS  who distributed  exercise books, pencils, pens and chalks.   We also received a “well-wisher” who distributed clothes to all children who do not have clothes.

We had an educational tour to  Umoja which was very successful and enjoyable to all teachers and pupils.  All these events were happening while our Project Manager/Trustee. Zipporah was sick and confined on her bed.  But the school management  made sure that they inform her of  every development on day to day progress.

The school closed and now opening with a lot of challenges too as  this third term is tough with exams, which means that we must have enough food to take us through this period  pf pre-examinations and National Examination to avoid children running away before they sit for them. 

We really thank all of you to have put this school and the pupils to your hearts.  May God bless the works of your hands as you extend  your generosity to them. 

God bless you.

SPORT MINISTRY'S RECOGNITION

SECOND QUARTER       -    MARCH-JUNE

 

Mzesa Day Care Center has been recognized by the Ministry of Sports, which is a very big step ahead for the boys and girls that we have.  We have been registered in MYSA, (Mathare Youth Sports Association), a body which takes care of sports in this area. Many activities have happened and a lot of football training has taken place, prompting  teachers and pupils exchanging ideas as they place.  We have had many visitors from the Ministry of Health coming to counsel  our big boys and girls on  HIV/AIDS and various sex related issues.

Since this is the first year for the School to sit for Kenya Primary School Examinations, teachers are working extra hard and many giving in their hours to see that our children performs in their examination this year.   We take this opportunity to thank all our partners, supporters, encouragers and the community as a whole who have given us hope and assistance during this time when things are hard  to afford.  We are looking forward to buying Games/Sports uniforms for these children so that they can with others, and it is your kind heart towards these children that will make it happen.

Thank you and may God bless you  so mightly.

WONDERFUL TIMES

Mzesa kids on trip
Mzesa kids on trip

 

 

We opened with wonderful memories of well wishers who showered blessings of all sorts to these children. During the Christmas period, we had few shillings and managed to take these kids to the bomas of Kenya to watch various cultural dances and see various activities. We then proceeded to the Game Park where they saw various animals which they only read and had never seen them. This was wonderful time for them and they have never forgotten about the trips. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS AND BLESSINGS. Your donations have had a far reaching end for the kids and will never ever forget in their entire life.

 

We have continued to have blessings! We have been visited by various people who have donated clothes of various sizes, shoes and blankets. Our Councilor has bought 2 sacks of beans and 1 sack of maize for the kids to make sure that there is continuity for learning as it has been proved that when there is no food, most of the kids run back to the streets and dump-sides in search of food. Although food prices and other commodities has rocketed up, we have had our kids in their classes because of your continuous support. We thank everyone who has extended a kind hand and donated anything in form of money, clothes, food, shoes, etc be blessed. We continue to pray that God blesses you so mighty so that you continue blessing these kids in order for them to achieve something in their lives.

 

God bless,

 

Zipporah
