Relocation of the new school#Merry christmas and a Happy 2019

Thank You our Donors for making us reach this far, 2018 was a good year indeed like a friend in need is a friend indeed you have made the children of Kiambiu in Kenya smile when they were not able to.

In 2018 you made us  continue with;-

  •  Food programme


We are able to purchase food and it has became our main program in the school. 

As we speak we are feeding over 100 children in the school thanks for your support through donation and we expect more children who need our support in the year 2019 to be part of Kiambiu Academy.

  • Health program


We have continued with the  health program and it hasn’t stop thanks to you for the support. Therefore we usually bring someone who can come and check on the health of the children, this is happening because of the donation we managed to receive from you.

Polio vaccine has never been skipped.

  • Relocation of the new school

The main challenge that the Kiambiu school face was that they had to relocate to a new school since the demolition was on going.Through this the project leader had to look for a school which they could fully settle and managed to get one.By this they wont have any destruction and they will manage to study in a good Environment.
All this happened because of every support and donation we received from day one  to the last month of the year.

All the children in Kiambiu sent me a message and it said, “Thank you donors and those who helped in any activity. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Be Blessed to all”.

Therefore on behalf of every volunteer who keeps the project of Empowering the Vulnerable in Kiambiu Academy we want to say THANK YOU for the donation we received since the beginning and we expect 2019to be a prosperous to you and your family/friends.

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 the society!

To all our Supporters,

 

Thank you for your support in empowering small businesses. Our micro loans are really helping vurnerable women to start or run their small businesses. Meet Pauline one of the small business owner in Nairobi, she recently received a loan to boost her shop.

 

This is what she had to say,

 

Hallo, my name is Pauline, I am very grateful for the loans that i received and i want to say thank you. I used my loan to stock my small shop and since then I have been able to meet the basic needs of my family and pay school fees for my children.

I say to all donors, thank you!

 

We welcome your continued support that helps provide microfinance loans to individuals like Pauline. 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 20+ deaf and blind children aged 5-18 years. Most children are orphans and some of them were abandoned by their parents due to lack of finance to support the children.

 

Through your help those lovely children will not feel stigmatized when they grow up and they will find more easily a proper place in the society! Thanks to all the donors who have so far helped this dream come true Disability is not inability!

 

FOCUS ON THE 3 PAST MONTHS

 

Thanks to our donors for your continuous support. Your support means so much; not only to the school, but to the kids you are helping. We want to let you know how much we have achieved in the last 3 months.

 

Food supplies

On 12thSeptember, Tumaini members went to visit Siaka special children in order to supply them with more food to keep them going and also spend more time with them. From the donation we received on 28th August 2018 of $275, We have managed to buy 10kg rice, 10kg beans, 10kg maize, 5 lts cooking oil,tomatoes,onions and 10kg sugar.

 

Kitchen garden progress

Since the kitchen garden was launched in June,the school now have been able to provide the children with some fresh vegetables straight from the garden,thanks to one of our international volunteer, Alice Luscher who was coordinating the work on this project with the local staff and pupils from the Siaka school. Thanks to her diligent work, the Kitchen garden is now bearing fruits.

 

CHALLENGE AND UPCOMING EVENTS

 

The school depends entirely on the support from local volunteers (teachers, cooks, and other school assistants) and our generous donors. Still we have a lot of work to do to make this school able to support more vulnerable children. Because of the Kitchen Garden the school is becoming more self-sufficient. Nevertheless, they are still facing plenty of challenges. Most of all the presence school Dormitory is too small to accommodate all the pupils. That means that every child has to share a bed with other two pupils. As a reaction to this state we  launched a new micro project  to build a new dormitory for the pupils.

 

Once again we extend our heartfelt gratitude for the generous support rendered by donors through GlobalGiving which makes it possible for our organization to exist and to make the community a wonderful place to live in. We look forward to raising more for this cause.

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