Happy New Year to all our Donors, friends and well wishers. We are grateful for all the support you have extended to us over the years and particularly for your support in 2013. Thank you for helping the Foundation achieve her goals in 2013, we look forward to your continued support in the New Year 2014.
We had our challenges in 2013 but i am happy to note that we ended the year on a good note. All the children got a new set of clothes for Christmas and a pair of shoes. We had a hefty meal on Chrsitmas day and each took a bottle of soda to accompany the meaty meal. That is what Christmas is all about in Africa. All the children are well and the project is up and running. The children are more happier than before and i am glad they have a place they call a home and a dedicated team that makes everything happen positively.
I have the third term student reports for those who did not have school fees balances. We will be picking the school reports for those who did not get them as soon as we clear the bills. Some of the children excelled while others need to improve, but overall we are one big happy family. Hanifa will be completing her teacher training course at the end of 2014, while Alex will be joing secondary school. Jane and Elizabeth will be sitting for their senior four and we hope they excel and join college. We are encouraging everychild to work hard and motivate you the people making it possible for them to access quality education. We are also proud to teach them other aspects of life like doing house chores as a way of preparing them for life ahead. I have attached some pictures of the children taken during the festive season too.
The new school term will begin in the first week of February 2014. Each child needs scholarstic materials, new set of uniforms, school fees, medical check up among other home requirements. We are positive we can provide for these with your continued support and request that you keep the support coming through.
You will appreciate that we are happy to provide a home for these children especially the young girls because we are helping prepare for them a brighter future despite their past and vulnerable situation. The girls in this part of the world do not get as much attention as the boys in the family and chances are that girls are likely to be victims of early marriages, uneducated teenage mothers, sex slaves and all this exposes them to a constant risk of contarcing HIV/AIDS and other dangers. It is my sincere prayer that you keep supporting the project so that we continue supporting our beneficiaries. Thank you always
Happy New Year 2014, once again.
