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.

Protect 1800 people on Kokwa Island from Malaria

Kokwa dispensary construction has not been progressing on very well despite the slow pace as it has been.   There have been conflicts between County government and the office of the Constituency Development Funds (CDF).  Initially, Kokwa dispensary project was funded through Constituency Development Fund (CDF) but they did not fully implemente the project when the County Government came in and offered to construct a dispensary for the Kokwa community they did not want to continue with the already constructed part by the CDF and instead opted to start their own construction they started the foundation work and CDF gave up and stopped their construction.  At the moment there are 2 unfinished structures at Kokwa but the county government is still continuing with the project.    They held meeting with the community and promised that they will construct the dispensary to its completion.  The community is now optimistic after being in the darkness for a long time.  They hope that the county government will keep the words and speed up the process.  We have continued working with community and supporting families with very serious health problems mainly referred to other hospitals for further medication.  We hope for the best very soon as we realize that many people are really struggling and suffering from their unhealthy status which cannot be solved at the current temporary dispensary.  The area has been very dry and the community is struggling to provide food for their families we hope the situation will improve soon to the benefit of the community.  We thank all those who have contributed to the succes of this community this far.  We urge them to consider supporting the community even further for them to improve their living standards.
