Smile of appreciation
Monica (Right) and Jacinta, say it all through their smiles.
One year ago, these children futures were not assured. They slept hungry, no medication when they felt sick. Food was snot assured and clothing. School was not assured too.
Today, the story is different! Smiles all the way!!!
Your donations for the last one year have brought smiles and joy to these and other children of Teen mothers. Monica has completed he nursery school and joins class one next year while Jacinta will join nursery school next year.
We want to thank you for your kind donations. Next year, we know that you will continue to support Monica and Jacinta to continue with education and off course their smiles
With warm Regards
Susan looks at TYSA as Family
Susan is 16 year old. She is a form one student at Wiyeta Girls secondary school.
Susan’s family is separated and she lives with her mother in a single roomed house in the village, not too far away from the TYSA offices. Her father is alcoholic and is visible in the community drunk and disorderly. Her mother works as a casual labourer in the maize farms and little business to keep her large family of 6. She is the first born.
Susan finds consolation and comfort at the TYSA resource centre and the football ground where she spent most of her time. ‘I feel so frustrated sometimes when I see my father drunk and loitering in the community. It feels very bad. My mum works hard to try to feed us. I felt very bad one day when my mum told me to go to my dad to get little pocket money, when I went to see him, he chased me away in day broad right in presence of my friends’
TYSA endeavours to offer Susan and other girls in similar situation a good environment for personal growth. Without TYSA support, Susan and other girls in similar situation will not be able to access education
Your continued donations have ensured Susan and others who goes to secondary school. I would not have gone to secondary school, if TYSA did not pay my school fees. I remember that day when the Executive Director, bought everything for me and paid school fees. I will never forget TYSA and all those who support my education’ Susan.
With warm regards from Susan and TYSA
250 children, girls, youth and elders directly participated in the discussions on this harmonized draft constitution. They shared with passion what they hope this constitution should contain. Children were particular about protection, medication and education.
The girls want a constitution that looks at their unique needs especially reproductive health, entitlement to inheritance and access to equal opportunities.
The youth being majority in the population feels sidelined as the harmonized draft constitution only has two paragraphs which define them. They want a more presence in the constitution which also gives them at least 5% of all elective and appointive bodies.
The elders and community members were very clear about agriculture. Kenya depends on agriculture for its economy and it’s unfortunate that nothing significant is mentioned in the constitution about it. They want agriculture enshrined in the constitution. Security ranked second and they want every Kenyan security protected by the constitution.
TYSA wants Sports enshrined in the constitution. We are known worldwide as a sporting nation. It is up surd if we do not back this by an inclusion into the constitution
We thank all those who contributed to this project. Globalgiving sponsors and KCDF for donating the Harmonized Draft Constitution of Kenya Copies
