Things are going well at Kibera Mpira Mtaani. Students at the ECD (Early Childhood Development) Centre are continuing with their learning and the after-school students are still showing up in large numbers to take advantage of the services provided at the centre.

In recent months, KiMMta has been able to extend one of the buildings by adding on another storey. This gives extra space for the ECD students to learn and means that all the after-school students can study in one building rather than being split across two locations.

KiMMta has had a couple of big deliveries in the last week. One was a donation of 142 footballs from Alive and Kicking. Alive and Kicking is a social enterprise based in Nairobi which manufactures hand made footballs which are durable for the surfaces on which many children in Kenya play. Through a partnership with a UK department store, Alive and Kicking was able to donate footballs to charitable organisations and KiMMta received one of the largest donations due to the number of children they connect with in the community of Kibera.

The other big delivery was a 100 seater tent and 100 chairs. These will be hired out and the proceeds will be invested in KiMMta's education programmes....helping them become more self-sustainable.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Kibera Mpira Mtaani's education programme through Global Giving. Your contribution is very much appreciated.
