Kids4Kenya Raising Money in the community

Car Wash April 2015
Car Wash April 2015

On Saturday 15th April Kids4Kenya held a car wash in Baltimore, MD and successfully raised over $1,100 to help fund the schools facilities feeding programs in Kasigau, Kenya.   

We are continuing toliver our feeding programme at least at current levels. This currently involves providing a daily hot lunch to 1,200 of the 2,400 children across our partner schools, including all 400 or so nursery children. The programme supports all children at the three smallest schools (by enrolment) and nursery children at the three largest schools. To extend the programme to all pupils at just one of these three schools would cost an additional $11,000 per annum, on top of the $36,000 cost of the programme at current levels. To extend the programme to support all pupils will cost a total of around $65,000 per annum.

Ngambenyi redevelopment

A major project to develop our 7th partner school, funded in partnership with Hazel’s Footprints Trust. This project will include the construction of new facilities and the completion/renovation of existing buildings. The final school will consist of 8 classrooms, a dedicated pre-school, a multi-purpose hall and kitchen, staffroom and offices and a library/computer room. It will also include new/improved solutions for water and electricity supply, and hygiene and sanitation.

Cost: up to $150,000

Makwasinyi classrooms (Phase III)

This project will include the reconstruction of a block of classrooms at the school. An existing block of five classrooms will be demolished, one classroom at a time, and ultimately replaced by a block of four larger classrooms. This represents the final phase of work to improve classroom environments at the school - Phase I included the construction of a block of three entirely new classrooms and Phase II (on-going) involves replacing a block containing the old staffroom/offices and three classrooms with a block of four classrooms. Upon completion of Phase III, Makwasinyi will have a total of 11 identical classrooms.

Cost: approx. $45,000

Kisimenyi development (Phase II)

Following on from the two-year first phase of our project (completed in Sep 2013) to construct a new school at Kisimenyi, we will return to the school in 2015/16 to undertake a planned second phase of work. This will include the construction of four additional primary classrooms, a single classroom extension to the nursery school, the creation of staff housing and improvements to utility supplies (water and electricity).

Cost: approx. $85,000

Cost (2015): approx. $35,000

Furniture

Cost: approx. $30,000

Work Starts on Staff House at Jora

Jora Staff House
Jora Staff House

Building work has started in the last couple of weeks on our inagurual staff housing project, involving the construction of a single staff house at Jora Primary. This flexible, reconfigurable building will provide accommodation for up to three teachers in three two-room units. The house will be built to high-quality specifications, and include electricity and lighting, along with shared outside toilets and washrooms. We expect to start work on a similar project at another partner school in the coming weeks, using the $18,000 that we recently raised for this purpose.

As an added incentive to this project we are delighted to have again been accepted to take part in the BigGive Christmas Challenge, a matched funding event that offers our supporters the opportunity to have donations doubled. We have a maximum of $12,000 available to us in matched funding and we are therefore targeting raising $12,000 in donations over the 3 days of the challenge in Late December.
