We succeeded in becoming GlobalGiving Permanent members after the accelerators giving which ended on 31st December 2019. As Sheepcare community centre, we do feeding program to the poor children who do not afford food as an incentive to come to school. Without provison of such they usually go back to the street.
We are so grateful to the GlobalGiving forum which made our supporters to come in number to help us buy the necessary food for the children. It is always a big husttle when the year begins since it is the lowest time to have any income. But with tha amount that was remitted to our account by the GlobalGiving at the end of the January 2020, we managed to do the following which often has been such a challenge:
Purchase enough non-perishable food item which will last us for the entire first term which is from January - April 2020.
We have also managed to fulfill the budget of buying the perishable food item every week as now we have a source of finance dedicated for this unlike other times that whatever money we are able to get has first priority in ensuring feeding program before any other need.
We have increased the quantity of the food given to the pupils and students.
We have managed to feed both breakfast and lunch consistently the whole month of February to 350 pupils and 54 staff members who also have to benefit from the provision.
Raising fund through the GlobalGiving has made us to manage to keep every child happy and be able to come to school consistently. The frate of absentees which was almost 50% have reduced to about 30% for the month of February. We trust that our account will be active and have enough money to enable us keep the feeding program going without any hindrances.
