A paradigm shift

It is my pleasure to present our project progress report for the 2ndquarter (April- June 2019). The project; provide safe and clean water for 1500 children and women, is aimed at improving water supply to Mutulani community, in Makueni County, Kenya.

This quarter began on a very high and positive point after GlobalGiving Field Traveler visited our organization (PEN) and the project site providing both PEN and the Mutulani community with new insights on equipping Mutulani Borehole that has taken a long time. The government support promised has not come to fruition. We were advised to pursue posting a Micro Project on GlobalGiving platform, specifically to raise funds for equipping the borehole through provision of a pump and collection tanks. This has already been done and the Micro-project, Equip Mutulani Borehole for 2000 Children and women, anchored to this project to ensure that as we wind up the project, it achieves its ultimate goal.

PEN and both the Mutulani Schools and the community are planning to fundraise especially during the July campaign to attain our objective. We are also requesting all our donors to this project to extend their love to Mutulani through supporting this noble cause of transforming Mutulani through accessing sustainable water source.

Adopting a new strategy towards equipping Mutulani

It is my pleasure to present our fourth project progress report (February 2019-April 2019) since the project initiation in May 2018. “Giving children a chance to learn and grow” is aimed at sustaining the water supply and improving sanitation to Mutulani Schools and community, in Makueni County, Kenya.

This project is 11 months old and in the efforts of fundraising towards equipping Mutulani Borehole that was sunk in the year 2017, we are happy to have known a different approach to attaining the objective faster through GlobalGiving. This was brought to light by the GlobalGiving Field traveler Madam Isabelle Hall on 1st and 2nd April 2019 after visiting our project in Mutulani schools together with the Community

PEN is now developing a Micro project with a sole aim of raising funds for the water pump and equipping materials to upload in May 2019.

PEN, Mutulani community through Mawe CBO and Mutulani schools are grateful to the field traveler for visiting and enlightening on this new approach towards addressing the dire need of equipping Mutulani borehole towards acquiring a reliable water source

The final steps

It is my pleasure to present our project progress report for the 1st quarter (January- March 2019). The project; provide safe and clean water for 1500 children and women, is aimed at improving water supply to Mutulani community, in Makueni County, Kenya.

During this quarter, Mutulani community experienced a low season in terms of agricultural/farm production caused by poor rainfall distribution. This is because after the onset of the rain in mid November 2018, it lasted for less than a month a situation that could not nurture the crops to maturity resulting to a great percentage of crop failure. Of significant to note is that the students continued to access clean drinking water within the school compound from the tanks supplied through this project.

The Mutulani community and PEN have been following with various partners whom were approached as well as campaigning for more resources towards project completion. The Makueni County government through the department of water is one of the major partners and has given assurance of equipping the sunken Borehole in 2017 a project that is aimed at increasing the amount of water and sustaining it for the children and the community. The water will also reverse some periodical trends on water shortage through unreliable rains since the water surplus will be used for irrigation.

Once the borehole is equipped, the community and the school shall be trained on project management and sustainability then close this project and focus on the new project; “Giving children a chance to grow and learn” find the link to the project: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/giving-children-a-chance-to-learn-and-grow/

We appreciate the continued support to our project by our donors. We wish our donors a fruitful year 2019.
