Build School for 80 Students in Arid Kachuruu Keny

Candidates from Kachiuru primary school who sat for their final exams last year and performed quite well were lucky to get sponsorship from various well-wishers and all of them joined different high schools in Meru County.  Necofa together with our partner Friends of Kenya Schools and Wildlife (FKSW) were able to offer scholarship to one student from the area by the name Naomi Ntinyari where we will be supporting 80% of her school fees every term. The girls was from Kachiuru primary school.   Parents from this school were very happy to see their children join high school and especially the girl child.  Educating girl child from this region is slowly being taken positively and literate parents are really encouraging the community to consider educating their girls. 

The school kitchen project was successfully finished and it is now in use and the feeding programme is proceeding on well and attracting more children from the village to join the school.  The headteacher has reported that the school population is growing and they are looking forward for more development.  They currently have few permanent classrooms and they are still fundraising for more classrooms and desks to improve on current learning environment.  We thank our partners and all well-wishers for their noble support towards Kachiuru Primary School.

Help Educate 330 Mukinyai School Orphans, Kenya

We are still fundraising for the youths’ workshop from Mukinyai village but we have not raised much but we are still working on that.  10 students were able to join boarding high schools while others joined day schools from the neighbourhood.  3 of them were able to get full scholarships from different supporters and for the rest their parents and guardians are working hard to ensure they are in schools.  Those in primary school are proceeding on well with challenges here and there but we are happy they are slowly coping and more importantly still going to school despite the challenges.  We had requested the relevant government offices to consider supporting the very venerable households but unfortunately not much has been done towards that direction.  A few have benefited from Community Development Fund (CDF) bursary and we are still pushing them to consider providing the same to more very needy pupils from the area.  We hope they will honor our request and have more pupils from benefiting from Mukinyai area.  We thank all those who have supported the community in different ways be blessed.

Improve Livelihoods of 225 HIV-affected families

It has been dry since mid-January this year but our beneficiaries were lucky to have some vegetables in their kitchen garden and in their small ways they tried to do some irrigation to sustain the vegetables for their families’ consumption.  They have been preparing their gardens ready for planting during the expected long rains in April and since it has started to rain in some areas they are now planting.  We have supported some of them with seeds and planting materials and in the course of the week we will be distributing organic fertilizer to them.  They count themselves lucky since they were able to get vegetables from their kitchen gardens for the entire dry spell and they have expressed appreciation to Necofa for training them simple but useful urban gardening techniques which have enabled them survive during the dry spell.  We are still considering trainings on value addition to the beneficiaries and this will build their capacity in one or the other.  Those near the youth polytechnics have been learning from them on various farming methods, value addition and agribusiness among others.  These skills and techniques have helped them improve their kitchen gardens as well as sharing information with others on sustainable farming for food security even during dry seasons.  Some beneficiaries are using their kitchen gardens as demonstration sites which are very positive.  We are happy that together with our well-wishers we have created a positive impact and we believe we will achieve even more with our beneficiaries and the community at large.
