Akili school term 2 updates

Dear Donors,

Akili Girls are back to school this week after a one-month holiday break. we are very happy to reunite with them again. Thanks to the torrential rains, all our water tanks are full to the brim and we have enough rain water to take us for the next three months. Thank you so much for helping us to purchase these water tanks. We are hopeful that we will raise funds to drill the well by the end of the year.

We were also happy to meet Mike of GlobalGiving Org when he visited our project site in Kisumu and saw first hand the great work are doing

thank you all for your support.

God bless you

Keeping girls in School

Dear Donors,

Because of your support, our girls successfully completed term 1 at Akili Boarding school. All the girls stayed in school all term and were provided with school uniforms, 3 meals a day and school supplies. We also hired a sports coach and our girls were able to actively participate in different sports including football and volleyball. The girls were mentored through our Smart Girls Program and we were very pleased to see their confidence and self-esteem soar as a result of participating in these programs. We also ensured that all those who are in need of sanitary pads received two packets each every month allowing them to go through their menses with dignity and keep them in school. We cant thank you all enough for partnering with us to make this possible and keep our wonderful girls in school

As schools reopen for a second term next week, we are excited to meet our girls again and continue to support them through education for yet another term.

At the beginning of this month, we were happy to meet Mike from GlobalGiving who visited our project in Kisumu and highlighted to our team how we can effectively  use GlobalGiving tools to be improve our work

Thank you for walking this journey with us,

Akili Term 1 2017 updates

Dear Donors,

Hope this finds you well.

I'm happy to report that we successfully resumed classes for the start of 1st term in January 2017. We also admitted 16 more girls to the boarding school.

There has been severe drought here and it has really affected our farming activities. We used most of the water from our roof catchment to water our sustainable farms at the Obambo Campus during the months of November and December as the students were home for Christmas Holidays. We however had to stop watering the farms when we noticed persistent drought. we had thought it would rain occassionally and replenish the water we use in the farms.

Our boarding school now has about 40 students and this means they are now using a lot of water every week unlike last year. After a long dry spell, it recently rained heavily for a day and our tanks got filled up saving us from buying water from kisumu town.

We will continue to reach out to our friends and raise the funds we need to drill this well by the end of the year 2017.

We thank you for all your contributions and support that has enabled us to provide clean water through our underground water tanks and thereby keeping all the 40 girls in School.

Thank you

God bless you.
