SURPRISE GUESTS FROM GLOBAL GIVING TO THE VULNERABLE WOMEN

Fruits of their labour
Fruits of their labour

Thanks Isabelle Hall and Paige Creigh for the visit.

We were honored to host Isabelle and Paige at our organization on 16th April who got the opportunity to meet some of the women who are supported by the microloans and got to interact with them on a one on one basis. Thanks and welcome again!

SUMMARY

We work on empowering around 80 vulnerable women and youth living in Kenya poor suburb through revolving funds and also by an individual follow up. Our goal is to enable them to start and run their own small businesses in order to sustain their families and also improve local and sustainable economy. Some of our members are HIV positive. We want to financially empower them, and thanks to economic independence they are no longer stigmatized by society!

To all our Supporters,

Thank you for your support in helping empower women and their businesses. Our microloans are really helping vulnerable women to start or run their small businesses.

New Business Idea

During our last meet up the members came up with a new business idea to be implemented as a group, where they will be making liquid soap and sell locally in hotels, schools etc. The profit from this business idea will go back to the business to help it grow to an even larger business. The money can also be loaned to the members so that they can boost their individual businesses if the need arises.

I say to all donors, thank you!

We welcome your continued support that helps provide microfinance loans to individuals. You are helping vulnerable women with the ability to become self-sufficient and provide basic necessities to their families. Every single donation we receive will help to eradicate poverty.

Much appreciation!

ENVIRONMENT OF THE PROJECT

Siaka School is a boarding school located in Bungoma County and receives 21 deaf and blind children aged 5-18. Most children are orphans and some were abandoned by their parents due to lack of finance to support the children.

We thank all the donors who have so far helped this dream to come true. Thanks for your help through Siaka school, those lovely children will not feel stigmatized when they grow up and will find a proper place in the society.                                            

Disability is not Inability

  1. 1 FOCUS ON THE 3 PAST MONTH

    Thanks for the tremendous support from GlobalGiving donors and local volunteers. We managed for the last few months to provide the children with:-

      i. Assistive Devices

     During our last visit we were able to bring to the children abacus that would help them very much in their studies and we are glad each child was able to get one

      ii. Food program

    We continue to feed the children daily. We usually use 10kg of maize, 7kg of beans and 5kg of rice per week without delay.

    For now we are able to feed them with meat/fish and fruits once a week. We hope to provide them at least twice a week soon and also to include a variety of balanced diet to avoid malnutrition in the kids,

      iii. Clothing program

    On our visit to Siaka we managed to give clothing to the children and some of the teachers, since the last time we gave them clothes it was not enough. Now they can avoid the harsh conditions when the weather is cold and that’s our joy.

         

  1. 2 CHALLENGE AND UP COMING EVENTS

    The school depends on support from local volunteers, teachers, cooks and not forgeting our generous donors. There’s a lot of work to do to make the school able to support more vulnerable children.

    In order to give them a full education we still miss :-
  • Braille books
  • white canes
  • Feeding program to continue without any financial constraints in future
  • Supplying electricity
  • Finishing the current classes being built but stopped due to financial constraints.

    Let’s stand with the special children of Siaka School for the Blind and Deaf.

A wonderful beginning of 2019

ENVIRONMENT OF THE PROJECT

Glory Education Centre is a tiny school in the slums of Nairobi. Today the school receives 98 pupils from 3 to 10 years old children coming from the surrounding slums. Our primary objective is to provide them with good quality and free education, as it is the first step to going out from rough poverty they are struggling with.

This school is entirely funded by the parents of the pupils and the support from our NGO Tumaini through the generous donors from GlobalGiving. The fundraising pays the three teachers and all the resources (books, uniforms, pen, tables, board and so forth) we managed to get in past two years.

 OPENING DAY

The children were able to resume to school after a long holiday and got excited to study in their new school. They are now in a good environment and they are hoping for the best in their studies and their future lives.


  FOOD PROGRAM

Our visit this year to the school we prepared a healthy lunch for the pupils and shared the meal together. Each child had a plate of rice, beans and cabbages. They loved it so much and we shall continue supporting them with the food program.

 


 CHALLENGE AND UPCOMING EVENTS


Since the relocation of the new school most of the pupils skip classes this is because their parents lack school fess and by this the children are few in the classes. We are looking forward to know how we shall resolve that so that they can be able to study once again.
