Communities learning self-reliance

It is my pleasure to present our project progress report for the 1st quarter (January-March 2020). The project: Provide safe and clean water for 1500 children and women is aimed at improving water supply and sustaining it to serve the Mutulani community in Makueni County, Kenya.

This quarter was characterized by heavy rains with bumper harvests of the farm products planted during the October-November rains. The period was embraced by all the community members due to the high production despite some challenges that manifested randomly in some parts of the Country like the Locusts manifestation among other pests and the heavy rains which affected some crops that does not require much water

The communities have been learning ways of addressing their own issues locally especially dealing with the pests and exploring local fundraising from various partners to support in achieving sustainable water source in the area. The community through MAWE CBO approached Africa Sand Dam Foundation, followed with the County Government and the National Government Constituency Development Fund and finally to Davis and Shirtliff towards equipping Mutulani borehole.

We are making a kind request to all our donors to continue supporting this noble cause of transforming Mutulani area towards achieving a sustainable water source. We also extend our appreciation to the GlobalGiving Program Team for the continued support in actualizing this dream.

Thank you,

Beginning the journey through local fundraising

It is my pleasure to present our project progress report for the 4th quarter (October - December 2019). The project: Provide safe and clean water for 1500 children and women was updated and is aimed at improving the water supply and sustaining it to serve the Mutulani community in Makueni County, Kenya.

This quarter formed the onset of the October-December short rains and to date the rains have not stopped. Despite the floods and mud slides in some parts of the area, no casualties have been reported from Mutulani. The crops in the farms are flourishing and promising a high yield. Water harvesting has been intensified by the community through natural harvesting structures and other water storage structures.

PEN, the Mutulani community and Mutulani secondary school have laid strategies to fundraise locally to ensure the project gains support from the local community and leaders. Through these efforts, a proposal was submitted to the National Government Constituency Development Fund’s Office seeking support towards equipping Mutulani Borehole with a Water Pump. These was after several visits and discussions towards the project aiming at solving water problems for the school going children.

We are making a kind request to all our donors to continue supporting this noble cause of transforming Mutulani area towards achieving a sustainable water source. We also extend our appreciation to the GlobalGiving Program Team for the continued support in actualizing this dream.

Thank you,

project Merger for synergy

It is my pleasure to present our project progress and update report (August-September 2019) for the Project: “Giving children a chance to learn and grow.” This project wasaimed at creating a sustainable water supply system that would not only provide water throughout the year but also improve the standards of sanitation to the Mutulani Schools and community, in Makueni County, Kenya.

During this period, PEN in consultation with the Mutulani community especially the Schools and the local community-based organization that spearheads the project, agreed to update and merge this project with the original project ‘provide clean and safe water for 1500 women and children.’ The fusion of the two projects is geared towards provision of clean and safe water in Mutulani community including the community’s institutions (Mutulani primary & Secondary Schools) and improvement of sanitation standards. The two projects, though slightly different, aimed at the same goal thus the rationale of combining them. This would also enhance the fundraising efforts through the GlobalGiving platform to achieve the overarching goal of the projects. The “Giving children a chance to learn and grow” project has so far raised $97.69 since it was posted, an amount that will be pooled with those of ‘provide clean and safe water for 1500 women and children’ project. Further, the micro project that was posted in the GlobalGiving page with an objective of equipping the Mutulani Borehole that was sunk in 2017 with a water Pump retired in August 2019, thus all effort will now be directed to fundraising for one project with the purpose of achieving the ultimate goal soon. The synergy that will be gained through the merger of these projects is aimed at enhancing the effectiveness of the project and to improve the efficiency of fundraising strategy.

Mutulani Community and PEN continues to appreciate the selfless support that all our donors and supporters provide towards ending the perennial water and sanitation issues experienced in Mutulani village.
