Though primary school in Kenya is free, not everything is paid by the government. The children still have to buy uniforms, examination registration fee among other levies. For majority of the families and especially orphans who live on less than a dollar every day, education is elusive. Several children in Munyaka areas on the slopes of the cherangany hills where Juhudi works found joy when they had fun and enjoyed porridge. The children here who are from poor family are most landless living in the nearby centre. The project has enabled children at least to attend school and receive basic education. Hunger remains the biggest obstacle. During the planting season, most of the children accompany their mothers in search of manual work to put food on the table. Our feeding and education project endeavor to provide support to the children to access education. The project pays for school fees and purchases some of the school materials. Since the school open early in the year, 2vchildren have been support to purchase uniforms, 6 bought books and 8 paid for internal examinations. As we plan to host the Day of the African Child on 16th June 2010, we look forward to offering children from Kabolete, Mwanga, Amani and Kimuri primary school an opportunity to share their experiences and inspire each other. We hope to engage the families, community member is ensuring that children are protected and supported to realize their dreams. We shall keep you posted on this development. Meanwhile, Juhudi would like to let you know that we have a new Executive Director. His name is Steve Ombere. This follows a restructuring at the organization. Mr. Eliud Akanga Who has been in charge of the organization moves on to take other personal duties. He however remains close to the organization. From now on you will receive updates from Steve.
