EDUCATION:

Our end of year performance for our children was good because most of our children were promoted to the next levels of learning.

In term three, funds were scarce and only scholastic materials were bought for them in small numbers and getting food was also a problem.

There was an attack of TB to one boy and he passed away in October 2013.

HEALTH:

Long term survival, HIV I AIDS:

Female condoms; we have visited clinics on clinic days and supplied to women and even when they are in need in other places through counseling

Male condom; we have at the same time done the same to men

Septrine and ARV's:

All our members attend clinics for their treatment in time during clinic days

We also make sure we get control tablets for the epilepsy

Elderly women, epilepsy and Orphans and other Vulnerable Children (OVC) feed at the center and get care when they are sick

Child headed families; these are a big problem when we run short of funds i.e. life becomes too hard

There is also a new child headed family of five (5 children) and these need a lot of care although under RWEN support

The center takes care of 52 children who live there at school and at times taken back to guardians and care takers to stay with them

Our activities:

Agriculture: matooke (banana), maize, beans and green vegetables, the yield for the year was good and hardworking members have got a good yield of beans, matooke and maize

Poultry: local poultry is doing well in all members because it is simple for them

Local goats keeping:

Members have made improvement on their animals

Piggery:

Five members have maintained piggery project

Achievements:

  • Hard work in women and children
  • Women will make some contributions for food for their children at school
  • There has been good performance for the children in end of year examinations
  • RWEN is able to feed elderly, OVC’s and those with epilepsy at the center
  • RWEN has trained a drama group to sensitize communities on HIV!AIDS through music, dance drama (MDD)

Challenges:

Lack of transport to move to far places to reach people in need for example;

  • Child headed families
  • To take OVC’s out

There was a big problem to feed children in term three of 2013 due to lack of money to buy food

Prepared by RWEN and initiated by
