A New Beginning- Start of a New Season

Dear friends and partners,

Its another time when we share progress with you and also take the opportunity to thank you for the great support you have continued to give us.

The last few months have been challenging for various reasons. All in all it has been exciting and full of promise.

At the end of the last reporting the project had embarked on installing electricity to enable pumping of water from the open well to the green house. This was to ensure the drip system works well after replanting. The electricity installation cost over 34,000/= ($400)

We also managed to purchase and transport a green house replanting kit or refill pack consisting of greenhouse inputs for one season worth 29,000/= ($341). Transportation to the project site cost the project 2,000/= ($24)

We also had to employ another green house manager at the cost of 4500/= ($53) per month since May 2012.

Total expenses for the period came to Ksh 69,500/= ($818).

Events in the last quarter were interesting given the submersible pump was stolen from the school compound in March but recovered at the point it was being sold by local policemen. This also set us back two months since the pump was used as evidence in the court case that followed.

Another major challenge still remains slow disbursements from the global giving team. This means implementing other phases of the project has been slowed down considerably.

Despite the challenges we have managed to replant another crop of tomatoes and we expect to get a good harvest in about three months beginning September 2012 with harvesting expected to last till March 2013. We place expected sales at 300000/= ($ 3529)

We will not be able to do all this without the support of our faithful friends. 

As one of the pictures shows consistent supply of meals is beneficial to the children. The children are enjoying meals donated by the government which is not consistent, but a situation we expect to move away from soon.

We continue to ask for ideas, suggestions and comments on how to make this project better and able to have the intended impact on the children and other beneficiaries

Thank you on behalf of the entire board, teachers, and especially the children- we appreciate your support

Goodwill to you all.
