Despite hard times of covid 19 pandemic raise education centre has finally opened its doors for fully learning in all classes as per the government directives from 4/1/2021 after staying home for a period of nine months. We were engaging the pupils with revision papers while at home and monitoring their progress closely hence they all resumed to school. In addition, new pupils from Mombasa suburbs are enrolling in our institution
" I thank raise organisation for taking care of our pupils during the long period when the institution were closed , some schools though did not bother how there pupils are coping at home that is the main reason today I have accompanied these five single parent with there children so that they can enroll there vulnerable children for quality education at raise education center. I was impressed by the dedication of the teachers to offer virtual classes despite of the economic challenges they faced. I also thank GlobalGiving and all the donors who stood with our children during this hard times, God bless you for the good work you are doing for our children" Mama Halima(not her real name)
We received 586 dollars last month and we managed to buy food for our children and purchase additional text books. We very much appreciate all donations in supporting our children to access quality education and still we are humbly appealing for more support in purchasing more text books, running our feeding program and meeting some of our project operational cost. Thank you once again GG and our able donors for your generous contributions, we are very much open to host GG and any other donor to have a first hand experience of our work with Mombasa children.
