A Memorable Holiday

The month of December was very exciting for children who shared their holiday together for meals. A number of them orphans and children from single parents had very tremendous times. January has started and it's of joy that these children are going to join various schools as they will access food which is the most important thing in child development. "Am thankful, God bless, do it again, am happy" these were some of the remarks and quotes from the children after the sharing.

Apiyo back to school's smile

Rose Apiyo Abala was born in a very poor family. Seventeen years old Apiyo was forced to live with her grandmother in order to get her primary education. Also this made her parents to move away from home to an urban area for a job to help her and other children to access education. Apiyo struggled and worked hard, which saw her finish her primary education which prepared her to join secondary education. This made her to move living with her aunt. Here the challenges of Apiyo started. After attending form one the first year, she was working hard but not of real good performance.

On her second year in secondary school, Apiyo got a very big challenge which made her drop out of school. She was cheated by another fellow student from different school that she could have been married by the boy. This could not happen because they were both in school. After some time in relationship, Apiyo got pregnant. She could not go to school anymore as the pregnancy was growing big and she could not conquer the insults from other students in her school.

After talking to her and sharing of her situation, she promised to go back to school once she gives birth. Coming this year by April, Apiyo had delivered a baby girl and now she was anxious to go back to school. Last month, she joined Geta secondary school where she is boarding. Juhudi has come out strongly to rescue this young girl who now smiles and enjoys the secondary school environment. She can now get the requirements and the support that she needs to continue with her education. ‘’I am happy to be in school where I feel secure and comfortable to be. I will be happy helping other girls who are facing the same challenges in future. Thanks for those who are behind my support’’ Says Apiyo.

Irene and Elizabeth in school

Months of July and August are very hard months of the year in most parts of trans-Nzoia. These months are tough such that most families do not have food in their homes and the whole region at large. This has seen a good number of children exposed to child abuse. Majority of children are taken to work in farms to help their parents to get food and money for domestic use. These has made them be out of school and see them drop in their academic results tremendously as compared to those who attend school at all times. Not that this children only miss food but also bulk of them can’t access school requirements which will maintain them in school. Most families prefer their children not to go school but work for food. Many parents see education as a burden rather than an opportunity to change their lives. Mostly those affected are children of single parent, Orphans and those who stay with their step parent.

Juhudi has come out to safe and help these children to get food and see that they are back in school. Eight (8) children have been supported in school fees and other relevant school requirements. This has not only seen the children being back in school but also reduced child abuse of all kind. ‘It is very exciting that I can now wear school uniform and be in school as other children. Thank Juhudi children in crisis for the continued support and all those behind the support’. Elizabeth Apondi
