Navigating through covid 19 pandemic
By Nicholas Wanyama - Founder
Despite the covid19 challenges that we are currently facing raise education centre is trying to provide quality education to our vulnerable pupils .Currently the class 4 have resumed with classes as per the government directives and the school got a boost from a local corporate Safaricom foundation which donated 37 desks. The remote lessons are going on with more than 200 students benefiting on a weekly basis. This facilitates in enganging the students in education to avoid literacy level among them declining . 'I am very happy that my son is getting revision papers from the school every week. It is making him to be busy with class work at home and avoid idle time which could lead him to drug abuse here in Mombasa' Fatuma Mohammed(not her real name) a parent of class four pupil.
We thanks GG and individual donors for supporting us and we are still calling for additional support in ,masks,sanitizers , , computers, learning materials & operational support in offering remote lessons through revision papers , class four face to face lessons and sustainability to our feeding program.
Thank you and may God bless you all for your wavering support.
