Improve Livelihoods of 225 HIV-affected families

The long waited lunch rained a bit in November and December though not much as it was expected. Our beneficiaries were excited to revive their gardens and plant new crops. Although the rains were not very heavy we supported them with planting materials and seeds which they planted but since the rain was not enough, they did not do very well but atleast this January they are smiling since they have vegetables in their kitchen gardens which will sustain them for a while as they wait for long rains in April. We are planning to support them with organic fertilizer and if possible additional planting materials and seeds. Due to prolonged drought last year, in most parts of the country our beneficiaries had serious challenges on water issues and the little irrigation they were doing was not sustainable. For these reasons we are training our farmers on how to use simple and affordable techniques of water harvesting. We will also fundraise towards simple irrigation kits which they can use after water harvesting. We are also considering on organizing refresher training on value addition on farm produce to encourage them to practice these techniques to preserve their surplus. We hope this year we will in fundraising and we invite our friends and well wishers to join us towards these initiatives of supporting the less privileged in our society.

Empower 175 students for food security in Kenya

The dry spell prolonged more than it was expected and all school gardens were affected as students watering their crops carrying from their homes was not sustainable since water was also scarce in their homes. They didn’t have choice but to wait for the rains and fortunately in October there were some good rains and they were able to do water harvesting. They have now reestablished their gardens and they have new crops at the moment and they are optimistic that they will enjoy good harvest next year. The rains have continued and they have enough water for January when the dry spell begins and they are excited to have their own water tanks now with water not only for watering their gardens but also for general use in the school.
We are still fundraising for more water harvesting structures, simple irrigation kits and seeds for the other schools. Although students are on holiday, they have allocated duties among themselves to take care of their school gardens. We are happy that students are owning these projects thus confident of sustainability and change of the negative attitude towards farming/agriculture in general We will continue fundraising for this project and we thank all our well wishers for their kind contribution and we encourage and invite others to consider supporting this youth project. Be blessed all.

Protect 1800 people on Kokwa Island from Malaria

As mentioned in the previous report, we managed to buy a delivery bed for the dispensary auto clave machine Blood pressure machine and drugs especially anti malaria and malaria drugs. The community also had the opportunity to host visitors from USA who supported purchasing of the medical equipment and drugs. They had good times with them and they were very pleased to discover how much they had done towards community health through their support. On the other hand it was a great honour for the community members to host these visitors who has supported them that much. Among the visitors one of them was an optician who conducted eye checkups in the village and he was able to come up with a report on his findings after the exercise. He identified one serious case of a young boy who had eyes problem and one of his eye was almost blind. The boy was referred to Nairobi for further medication attention and early this month an eye surgery has been done. Although the eye might not function properly, the other eye was saved from a similar problem. We intend to conduct a medical camp if we succeed in fundraising. The community is very greatful and through us they have expressed their appreciation. We thank all our partners and well-wishers and we call upon them to continue supporting our communities.
