Build School for 80 Students in Arid Kachuru Kenya
By Lucy Mathenge - Project Assistant
The school term started in January 2018 when the pupils and teachers reported back ready for the year 2018, unfortunately they had a great loss in the first week when they opened the school. One of the school teachers passed away on 4th January 2018 when he reported to school as usual early in the morning when he was attacked by bees to death. The bees were in the school compound where they had been for a while, the pupils started shouting when the bees became violent and started attacking them and when the teacher came out of the staffroom to check why the pupils were shouting he was badly attacked and passed away before reaching the hospital. It was very sad for the whole Kachiuru community but otherwise they are slowly recovering from the loss and the bad incidence. Otherwise school program is going on well and the pupils have started well with most of them reporting after the December holiday. As earlier mentioned, 15 candidates did their final exams in October last year and all of them were admitted to secondary schools in January 2018. Although the performance was not very good, they all managed to go to secondary schools. We are happy that some of them were lucky to get scholarships from different well-wishers and now already in school. Together with our partners FKSW, we have managed to give annual scholarships to the most vulnerable children in the community. We have also managed to support feeding program in the school and we remain optimistic that we will get enough funds to continue supporting this noble initiative. We have also re-established school garden project to produce some vegetables to supplement the nutrition, although it is very dry at the moment, we hope the weather will improve in March & April. The pupils are currently preparing the garden ready for planting. We hope they will manage to do some crop watering as they are planning to do so before the rains come. The pupils are very determined and we wish them all. Thank you all for the continued support.
