It is my pleasure to present our first project progress report for its first quarter (May- July 2018). The project; “Giving children a change to grow and learn” is a continuation of the “Provide safe and clean water for 1500 Children and Women in Mutulanicommunity” aimed at sustaining the water supply and improving sanitation to Mutulani Schools and community, in Makueni County, Kenya.
PEN, the Mutulani Primary and Secondary Schools and the entire Community are happy and appreciate Global Giving for the approval of this new project. After the introduction of the Mobile giving tool with M-Changa (donating through M-Pesa), it is evident now that local fundraising has been made easier. Local community members have demonstrated participation in giving towards the success of the project with much ease since more than 90% of Kenyan mobile money transfer users use M-Pesa.
During the July 2018 Global Giving Rewards bonus day, community members began donating even as little as $ 0.5 towards the project. We are anticipating achieving this project objective earlier than the initial project.
We are calling upon all our donors who have began this journey with us to continue supporting this noble cause towards achieving water sustainability in Mutulani and the surrounding areas as well as improving sanitation in the schools giving them an opportunity to learn and grow.

Sustaining Mutulani Development
By Mary Mutuku - Project Officer
It is my pleasure to present our project progress report for the 2nd quarter (April-June 2018). 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 project period, the Mutulani community has had a bumper harvest after successful rains experienced between February - May 2018. The community was also active harvesting rain water during the rains though Kyanduu Earth dam almost burst its banks however community efforts restored the dam using locally available materials
The Mutulani community and Mutulani Secondary School leadership has been following Makueni County government to ensure the borehole secures a budgetary allocation to be equipped during 2018/2019 financial year. This was approved as reported by the Mawe Secretary and Project implementation Committee chair. The project is expected to be completed once implementation of the government cycle begins
PEN on behalf of Mutulani fraternity posted a new project to Global Giving "Giving Children a Chance to Learn and Grow" Find the link below to the project: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/giving-children-a-chance-to-learn-and-grow/ The project has began to attract local donors and has laid fundraising strategies to ensure the project objectives are achieved within the stipulated time
We would like to appreciate all our donors and request them to consider sharing our new project with friends and relatives
We are indebted to all the support given towards this project by all our donors

Looking for more and faster fundraising options
By Mary Mutuku - Project Officer
It is my pleasure to present our project progress report for the 1st quarter (January-March 2018). 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 project period, the community’s development expectations of equipping the drilled borehole and distribution in Mutulani Primary and Secondary schools did not actualize since Makueni County who had earlier committed to support the cause reported a number of challenges which made them not to support the community in achieving their dream within the specified time. PEN, the Mutulani community through MAWE CBO and the Schools have increased efforts of looking for more partners to enable in phasing out the current project and initiating a new one whose impacts will reach the neighboring communities
We would like to appreciate our donors who have earlier supported this project and those who are still sending their support to date. It is through that support that Mutulani Community have benefitted through provision of three water tanks which all have water to the full after the rains being experienced to date and a Borehole that was drilled in 2017.
