Supporting the Glory school in Kiambiu slum in Nairobi

Food program for slum children
Food program for slum children

Welcome to Glory Education Centre !

I environment of the project

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

This school is entirely funded by the parents of the pupils and the support from the NGO Tumaini through our generous donors from GlobalGiving. The 3 teachers and all the resources (books, uniforms, pen, tables, board, etc) are paid by the fund raising we manage to get.

II Goals, activities and challenge of Tumaini for the school Glory center

-          Food program

The children go home for lunch as the school is unable to provide them food but most of their family can`t afford a complete and healthy food for them. This is why Tumaini try to support the school and provide as much as possible food for lunch.

=>  For now we are able to bring them twice a month food for the 98 pupils and teachers, we hope to be able to increase this rate very soon.

 -          Uniform program

 Tumaini contribute to raise money to provide uniforms for all the pupils as much as possible as some are orphans while for others their families are barely able to afford proper clothes to them.

=>  Currently we successfully managed to provide uniforms for the half of the children , still the other half has to wear their own clothes

 -          Health program

Tunaini invite every year professionals form government and partners, we organize with them vaccination campaign as the pupils family are not able to afford those services.

=>  Until now we successfully managed to vaccinate all of our pupils

 -          School Stationery

Tumaini helps the school to provide for every pupils enough stationaries as books, notebook and pencil but also furniture as table , chairs, board etc.

 III focus on the 3 past month

 This few months we kept doing our different activities and supplying, for example our last intervention was on the 16th of March: the project leader Pastor David Karanja Kimama and 3 volunteers of Tumaini (Catherine, Antony and Alice) brought for every one chapatis (local bread) and beans. (SEE PHOTOS ATTACHED !)

The pupils were really happy to see Pastor David and his team, they received us with lot of joy, and we thank a lot all of our donors who allowed those smiles and full plates!!

 IV Challenge and up coming events

 We are looking how we can help the school to get its own structure as the current room is rented and is too small and not proper for such young children and don`t provide them hygienic environment.

This is why Tumaini relies on the help and generosity of all our members, volunteers and donors.

Here comes 2018, Happy New Year Donors/Partners/friends/volunteers..We say Thank you for 2017 Job

Feeding program

Last year, 2017 was just the beginning of Siaka School for the blind. The Special Children of Siaka wishes all our donors/partners/friends a Prosperous 2018. Also thanking all the donors who contributed to this project and made a tremendous outcome in the year 2017.

Siaka special school for the blind didn’t have any braille papers/braille books but as we speak some of them can use braille books/papers for the first time. All thanks to our donors for their well donation.

As we speak few of them can write and read using the braille books/papers. This is happening because of the effort donors are putting forward to see how the children are able to have a conducive environment. Therefore, we want to thank everybody especially our donors for well work done in seeing the project proceeds.

Your donation also has been used to keep the school feeding program alive and is making a big impact by;-

-          Allowing children to be active in class

-          Making smile to the children

-          Promoting unity in class through same food to all children

In 2018 we have aligned many activities to keep us going. Such activities include;-

-          Starting a health program campaign

-          Building a classroom to the children

This January on 3rd, 2018 some volunteers came to see the children and gave them food which will keep the feeding program continue. We say thank you so much for that and we expect many volunteers who will help the needy children.

Special children in Siaka are very happy to see how people donate for them so that, they can learn and feed. All these is because of you donors/partners/friends/volunteers we say thank you so much once again. Be blessed…. This 2018 goes to everyone that is, donors/partners/friends/volunteers who support any child out there. Thank you

Thank You our Donors for making us reach this far, 2017 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 2017 you made us start and continue with;-

  •  Food programme started

We were able to purchase food and it became our main program in the school which wasn’t there.

As we speak we are feeding over 65 children in the school thanks for your support through donation and we expect more children who need our support in the year 2018 to be part of Kiambiu Academy.

  • Health program

As time went by we managed to start a 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.

  • Introduction of School Stationery

 When we started this programme many children did not have something to write on. Many of them were using one book for almost all the subjects but thanks to our donors who supported us and know they have books for each subject.

All this happened because of every support we receive from day one and every donation we received.

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 2018 to be a prosperous to you and your family/friends.
