Last term of this year has been like "a dream come true" at this School. Since we started this project, everyone at the School and the community at large has been praying that these kids should at least be patient and do Std 8 examinations. And for sure, for the first time, we had 17 children, 9 girls and 8 boys who sat for Kenya Primary Education Examinations! This is an achievement through our very hardworking teachers and the feeding programe, otherwise they would have gone back to the streets and dump-sites in search of food, drugs and prostitution.
Because of the assistance of donors, we have managed to purchase uniforms to all children who did not have any and bought more reading books, pencils, rulers and sanitary towels for our girls. We have bought enough ARVs through your kind donations and have made an agreement with Soweto/Kayole Clinic to supply more throughout next year at our usual subsdised cost. We have ordered 100 pairs of shoes of different sizes for the kinds who have been walking on bare feet and I am sure they will be excited to put on shoes when the School will open next year.
Next year, if God wishes, we are planning to build 3 more pit-latrines as the 2 we have are full and can infect our kids with cholera, etc. We had our School Pastor with us when we were closing for Christmas holidays and he said "SURELY GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS" and sincerely God answered our prayers this year.
We are looking for 2013 as a challenging year because we have 17 children (boys and girls) who have done exams and we believe through your continuous kind donation, we shall have to create some sort of training for them so that they keep themselves busy and not turn back to prostitution and drugs on the streets. We sincerely thank every donor so passionately. May God richly bless you, your work, your families and your entire life. We pray that you will continue extending your kind hands towards these children so that they may learn and eventually be able to sustain themselves in life.
Once again, thank you and God bless you all and have a wonderful Christmas and a very successful 2013.
