Mzesa Day Care Center

To facilitate a critical mass of slum residents with knowledge and capacity to effectively deal with public health and environment issues, advocacy on various socio-economic issues including poverty eradication, child labour, girl-child education and welfare and HIV/AIDS treatment and awareness. The HIV/AIDS pandemic has left many orphans and the girls are forced to be the breadwinner and are raped at unprecedented rates, thus Mzesa enrolls all students regardless of their HIV status.

GOOD ANSWERED PRAYER

The Second  Term started with surprises  for the Center.    We had 12 pupils who sat for Kenya Primary Examination last year as we last reported and  surprisingly, when the results were announced in March,  all of them passed   the examination.   Since then, we have been  waiting to see whether they will be admitted to the Government Secondary Schools.  Surprisingly again,  they all received  letters of admission to the Government Secondary Schools in May!  This is a wonderful achievement to the Center.  We have also had a teacher sponsored by one of the Government officer to teach at the Center.  This is also a very rare achievement.  This term we have also received 3 kids, 1 boy and 2 girls and we have managed to buy them School uniforms and shoes.  We have also managed to buy uniforms to more than 60 pupils.

All the above happens because of our good friends and our wonderful donors.  Whatever you give   happily and freely to this Center goes to a very good cause.  We have achieved all  these because you help us;  and we kindly urge you to continue extending your hand, as your donation makes a great impact to this community.  Also please help us with any idea which you think can make this Center have greater impact than this.

We take this opportunity to thank all who have donated to this Center and request for your continued support;  as we pray for your God’s  protection and blessings.

God bless you.

GOD'S BLESSINGS

The year started with a lot of rains. Since our Center was built at a lower level, the drainage has been a big problem, but we thank our Area Chief who mobilized the community around to come and dig a big drainage tank; and we hope this will help us when other rains will come.

 

We thank all our donors who enabled us throughout 2015. We managed to keep our children in School because we had enough food. We also managed to buy uniforms for a few children who did not have any. We have renewed our MOU with our local clinic for the ARVs; as they give these to our children at a half price.. We have purchased old computers so that our children can also learn how to operate computers.   We have engaged a contractor who is doing the wiring so that we can be connected to electricity, although the electricity itself is not stable.

 

In our last report, we said that our children were sitting for Kenya Certificate of Primary Education. We are proud to report that we had 12 candidates who sat for this examination and 8 of them have been taken by the Public Secondary Schools. This is a very big achievement for Mzesa! The remaining 4 were taken to private owned secondary schools.

 

All the above happens because of our dear donors. One of our child. Sharon Malala, a lame girl, who is also on ARV said quote "When God blesses people, I pray that he bless all those that are helping me too. These people have given me my life, my life is back, I can go to school, am like a normal person, I can wear uniform and I can manage to read and write. Surely God, …..God bless them" unquote.

 

We take this precious opportunity to thank all our donors who have given towards this noble work. We don’t take this for granted, we know you have other work you could have done with your money, but you give because you have love at your heart and you believe in us. Again, thank you very much and we would appreciate to hear from you for any advice. God bless you and your families.

TEMPTING TIMES

This term has been very tempting as we have faced very many obstacles. We have had our class 8 sit for their Kenya National Examinations despite various difficulties ranging from late registration by some of the pupils, sickness, ( as some of the candidates are on ARVs), lack of examination apparatus, lack of good desks (as the ones they are using as broken) etc. But we managed to come out of these and our pupils sat for the examinations and we are very sure that they will perform well just as we performed very wel last year, where we have more than 10 pupils in the Government and Private Secondary Schools.

We have also been faced by very destructive rains El Nino which literally destroyed the iron-sheet-built classes, flooded all classes, kitchen, Library and the play-ground. We have really struggled to see that various programs goes on by using our neighbors houses and digging drainages. By the time we closed the Centre for holidays, we had covered all the syllabus from class 1 to class 8, and our babies are taken care of. All our small kids in Pre-School classes graduated to Class 1 and Std 3 graduated tp class 4 with a wonderful ceremony which was attended by the community and their guardians; and to this, we honestly thank our teachers, our neighbors and even the pupils for being hard-working and understanding the situation.

We extend our gratitude to our supporters, kind givers, donors and the community for enabling us to go through this very difficult situation by giving us support in various forms, from clothes, food, shoos, learning materials, medicines, and physically coming to help in digging the drainages, we pray that God blesses every one. We would kindly ask for your prayers, support in financial and material in the next year which we anticipate to be very difficult also bearing in mind that most of our iron-sheet classes are destroyed again. We also request for any suggestion on how better we can improve the Centre. Your contributions on ideas will be very highly appreciated

Once again, thank you very much, as we take this opportunity to wish you MERRY CHRISTMASS AND A PROSPERIOUS 2016!

 

God bles
