Mukinyai pupils who are orphans and beneficiaries of the support provided by well-wishers have a reason to smile again as they prepare to go back to school for third term. They say the holiday was enjoyable and more so very important to them as they had an opportunity to attend tuition classes as the exercise of fetching firewood as a daily duty during holidays is no more. This is after their guardians received energy saving stoves. This has created big impact to the guardians and pupils as they can now utilize little firewood as a result of using the stoves. It has been consuming a lot of time for the children and women to fetch firewood. Children had enough time to do their holiday homework and gave an opportunity for others to attend tuition classes and especially those preparing to sit for their final exams in November. Having received uniforms has also contributed a lot to the orphans as they are able to be in school all the time unlike before when they felt isolated and felt odd with other pupils with their home clothes in school and of course since their guardians could not afford shoes and smart clothes for them, they used to miss school most of the time and this led to poor performance. Their teachers have really appreciated this support also as they used to complain a lot to the guardians due to poor performance of these pupils and absenteeism. We wish to thank the donors for their continued support.
