Hope for some victims

We are deligheted that our partner in Phillipines has worked to help several families to the lighting. Through our support with funds we raised, 10 families have access to lighting!

 Our partner is also offering education for the children affected thorugh Pushcart classes. It is wour hope that we shall eventually establish a long term partnership that will enable us work in east Asia region, and help provide clean lighting, but also support families to increase their income.

 Efren Peñaflorida expressed his well wishes and gretfulness to our founder, Evans, who offered to help. Both Efren and Evans were slected as CNN heroes in 2009 and 2010 respectively.

New lease of life in Samburu

New farming coming up in samburu
New farming coming up in samburu

When we started working in Samburu, families heavily relied on livestock for survival. This has been a reason for constant conflict between Samburu, Trukan and Pokot communities in Northern Kenya. Bright children, including girls are forced to take care of livestock and hence denied a chance to attend school. That is why we have been working with local community groups to support such children.

Through our project, we have been working with mothers  and families of the shepherd children to help them set up alternative income projects. We are ahppy that some of the families have staretd farming- planting crops and animal feed. We are working with them to semi- process the produce so that they can fetch more money on the market.

This is encouraging some of the families to start allowing their children to attend normal day time school. It is exactly the objective we wanted.

Thank you Message from Executive Director

Dear all our esteemed supporters,

Through your generous contributions, and other partners, we have now been able to help stop early marriages for young girls in Baragoi in Samburu area in Kenya who are enrolled in special evening classes.

These shepherd girls are now dreaming to improve their won lives and uplift the community. This year, one girl was able get a scholarship from one of our supporters to join high school after succesfully completing 8th grade. We have to have more of the girls continue to benefit from this special project.

We are also engaging local community groups with a view to using the shepherd girls benefitting from our project as ambassadours to encourage parents to allow more girls to go to school.

Once again thank you and please be our messenger and tell others about what we are doing to empower poor rural communities in Africa.

 

Thank you.

 

Evans.
