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.
Our Project's Information
Project Name: Provide clean & safe water for 1500 women & children
It is my pleasure to present our project progress report for the 3rdquarter (July - September 2019). The project: Provide safe and clean water for 1500 children and women is now aimed at improving the water supply and sustaining it to serve the Mutulani community in Makueni County, Kenya.
This quarter was characterized by an update of this project to accommodate the objectives of the PEN/Mutulani community integrated water projects into one. This was after the Micro project that was posted in May expired without meeting its objective. We are delighted that our proposed changes were approved and will now shift focus to getting the water flow to the schools and community. We are delighted that our project is now eligible to receive donations not only on GlobalGiving but also on corporate portals like the Eli Lilly & Co. In addition, PEN received a Site Visit Verified Certificate that demonstrates the good work the organization is doing in Mutulani area that was witnessed by the Field traveler in April 2019.
PEN, the Mutulani Schools and the community are now focusing their fundraising to the step-by-step completion of the project where specific milestones are target to complete the project. This will begin with the overdue installation of a water pump and a storage tank.
We are making a kind request to all our donors to continue extending your love to Mutulanipeople through supporting this noble cause of transforming the area through achieving a sustainable water source. We also highly appreciate the GlobalGiving Program Team for the continued support in actualizing this dream.

The Majority priority
By Mary Mutuku - Project Officer
It is my pleasure to present our project progress report (May 2019-July 2019) for “Giving children a chance to learn and grow” which isaimed at sustaining the water supply and improving sanitation to Mutulani Schools and community, in Makueni County, Kenya
During this period both PEN and the Mutulani community including the two schools (Mutulani primary & Secondary Schools), developed and posted a Micro project to the GlobalGiving page with an objective of equipping the Mutulani Borehole that was sunk in 2017 with a water Pump and enable the water to be accessed by the schools and the community. This was identified by the community and the area institutions as an intervention requiring an immediate action because the borehole has not been in use for over two years despite the dire need of water in the area
This being the main concerns for everyone in Mutulani at the time, all efforts are put towards installing a water pump to the Borehole and it is our humble request to our donors and friends of goodwill to help us actualize this dream.
