Our schools have closed for short August holiday. We are grateful the 2nd term has ended despite the many challenges that were there. Kachiuru school community had a good term but unfortunately the headteacher of Kachiuru primary had a motorcycle accident in the course of the term on his way to school and we thank God he survived. He escaped with injuries and he spent some weeks in the hospital where he was also operated on his knee. He is recovering well and we hope he will resume once the schools open towards the end of August. Despite all that the school progress has been good and as earlier reported a training on use of reusable sanitary towels was conducted. It has been reported that parents and girls in the school were very happy to receive the reusable sanitary towels and they also appreciated the training. Teachers have reported that they have noticed a great change with girls in their school attendance as well as performance and also the way they conduct themselves. It has been reported that absenteeism in girls has really reduced as they now feel full protected and comfortable during their periods. We have received end of term 2 results and we can confirm that there is good improvement for the girls. Thank you for the support.
As we had reported, the school still requires more desks and learning materials as well as uniforms and shoes for the students. The area has been very dry and parents have been struggling to provide basic needs for their families. There were plans by the school management to organize a fundraising event to raise funds for school desks and learning materials but they realized that the same parents who were to raise funds were very vulnerable and had nothing to contribute. The fundraising event was put on hold until situations improves. We therefore invite all our friends and well-wishers to be our guests of honor and help us raise more funds on this platform to help the Kachiuru community. We really appreciate the support given so far and the much we have achieved and request you to consider supporting us further. Thank you very much.
