Empower 175 students for food security in Kenya

The progress with youth polytechnics has been good in the year but different youth polytechnics faced by different challenges but they tried their best to overcome some of them.  It has been very dry in most parts of the country and the school gardens were really affected and they did not have much in their school gardens but some of them tried to irrigate their gardens with the scarce water.  They tried to maintain their vegetable gardens a task that was not easy at all but they were determined.  The Youth Polytechnics have closed for December holiday but hope to work on their gardens when the rains come.  They agreed to continue with their garden activities once it rains before they resume school in January 2017.  The school administrations are fundraising for a sustainable solution on sourcing water not only for irrigation but also for other daily water uses.  They intend to improve on water harvesting techniques and drilling boreholes for those in very dry places.  This will improve the situation a lot as they are all affected and since they have experienced the challenge for a long period, they now feel that they need a long term solution.  They have all learnt that the school gardens are really important to them and the students since the students are learning agribusiness skills which are really helping them even after finishing their courses.  On the other hand they are now improving their nutrition in their lunch program as well as the club earning some income when they sell the surplus vegetables.  They are requesting all the well-wishers to support them in fundraising towards sustainable water sourcing and they thank all who have supported them to this far and they hope they will continue getting the support to make life better for the young youths.

Build School for 80 Students in Arid Kachuru Kenya

The progress in Kachiuru primary school has been very good and the school had concluded the term well.  The feeding program was successful and teachers, parents and parents are very grateful and thank all the well-wishers who have supported them throughout the year.    They are happy that the school enrolled more pupils in the course of the year despite the challenges of few classrooms and desks.  The headteacher and the parents are still appealing to the government to consider supporting them with desks and more classrooms.  They are optimistic that the school will have more pupils willing to join school in January 2017 and they wish to accommodate them if it will be possible.   The government has promised them more classrooms but this has been the promise since the beginning of the year.  There is also need for more pit latrines for pupils use since the population is growing hence the need for more latrines as they have few and the pupils are forced to share the few that are available.

We invite all well-wishers to consider supporting this noble project to improve conducive learning environment for the pupils.  We are happy that the community is seriously considering educating girl child after a long campaign.  The school now has many girls unlike there before where only few girls used to go to school.  We continue encouraging the parents to continue with the same spirit and more so encourage those who are still not into educating girl child.  Thank you again for those who have supported this project and welcome many more to join hands towards this project.

Help Educate 330 Mukinyai School Orphans, Kenya

In Mukinyai not much has happened for the past 3 months but we have been following up on beneficiaries especially those in schools. We have been monitoring their progress even as we work hard towards fundraising to cater for more immediate needs by the community. We are optimistic that we will succeed in fundraising to address the needs. After the youths’ workshop that we conducted, our youths have started forming youth groups and they are starting small projects as they source funds and approaching other service providers to support them. They are also exploring on government opportunities in their region. We are working closely with them to provide support where we can and backstopping even as we consider conducting more workshops. We are happy they have already started taking steps after the first workshop we wish them all the best in everything they do and invite more well-wishers to join us in actualizing these realities. Thank you all for this far.
