Help Educate 330 Mukinyai School Orphans, Kenya

As reported in January, we had planned to support the most vulnerable pupils from Mukinyai who passed their final exams. We are happy to report that we managed to support 5 pupils from the most vulnerable households to join secondary schools. Three of them joined day schools in the area where two of them were lucky to join boarding schools. They have been at home for the April holiday and they reported that they are progressing on well. We are in the process of organizing paying school fees for the next term. We also managed to get others supported by the government through bursaries and we will continue pushing the responsible team to continue supporting them even in the other school terms. We organized a youth seminar with all school leavers in the area where we encouraged them to consider joining youth polytechnics which are cheaper and they will learn different technical skills. Some of them have already joined youth polytechnics and we are happy that our concerns were taken positively by students and their parents and guardians. We will continue encouraging them also to consider joining youth groups to enable them get further support from the government through youth funds and other opportunities provided by different players. We are happy that we are still making progress towards this though at slower pace, thank you all those who have been supporting this project.

Improve Livelihoods of 225 HIV-affected families

As previously reported, the situation has not been very good for our beneficiaries due to the prolonged dry spell. Most of them were very affected by the drought and they had nothing in their kitchen gardens by April. Due to climate change, we did not receive the long rains as expected and thus resulted to drying up of their kitchen gardens. We are happy to report that we have had rains in all areas where our beneficiaries are and they have reported that their kitchen gardens are starting to be green. We have already supplied seeds and organic fertilizer to them and most of them have already planted and as they said their gardens are now green. Our earlier plan to install rope and washer pumps in their homesteads was not successful due to limited funds we were not able to raise funds towards that initiative but we have not given up we are still fundraising for that and we hope one time we will realize our dream. Apart from being affected by the prolonged dry spell, our beneficiaries are proceeding on well though with different challenges but we have been encouraging them to keep going and remain focused. We thank all our well-wishers for providing their support towards our beneficiaries.

Protect 1800 people on Kokwa Island from Malaria

The dispensary construction is still ongoing but still at a slower pace since there are more challenges emerging but we are happy that the process is still ongoing. Currently the community is being served through temporary dispensary where they have been receiving their health services. We have one volunteer from the region who has been assisting the nurse in serving to the community and we are happy that she will be pursuing her diploma in community health as from May 2015. The girl has been sponsored by our partners and they will be fundraising for towards her education to ensure that she completes her course successfully and this is a big and encouraging step.
In general Kokwa area has been affected by prolonged dry spell which has affected most parts of the country. As a result, we have had many health cases in the region affecting both children and adults in the region but we are happy we have able to deal with the most complicated cases by providing support for further medication to the affected people. We are optimistic the situation will improve soon as we have been receiving some rains in most regions in the month of April. Although in Kokwa it is just light showers we are optimistic that they will receive some good rains in the coming days. We take this opportunity to thank all our well-wishers and partners for their continued support and encourage them not t give up and encourage others to join this network of supporting the needy in our communities.
