Build School for 80 Students in Arid Kachuru Kenya
By Lucy Mathenge - Project Assistant
Kachiuru primary school resumed after long December holiday with some management changes. This is after the headteacher was transferred to another school and a new headteacher reported to the school although this took sometimes for the pupils and parents to adjust to the new changes, normal school activities are now going on as usual. We held a meeting in January 2020 with the new headteacher and school Board of Management (BOM) to brief the teacher on our various interventions in the school as well as discussing the way forward. One of the issues we discussed was the previous plans of holding a fundraising ceremony with the parents and other guests to raise funds for purchasing school desk. As earlier reported, the parents suggested that the ceremony to be held this year. After long discussion with the BOM, it was agreed that the fundraising be held next term that is between May and July 2020. This is to give room for the new teacher to understand the process well as well as knowing more about the interventions. It was also suggested that the headteacher to call for a teachers parents meeting in the course of them so that they can as well have a clear picture of the promises and to commit themselves in participating and contributing the money for that development. We are happy and wish to thank our partners for sponsoring feeding program in the school for another year and also for providing scholarships for the most vulnerable pupils in the school 35 pupils benefited on scholarships and we appreciate the support. Kachiuru primary had candidates sitting for national exams in November last year and we are happy to report that the candidates did well and most of them joined secondary schools with few of them joining vocational training centres congratulations to the candidates. Through our partners, we have also supported a few students who joined the secondary school and 1 vocational training student. We are happy for the good progress and feel sorry that we were not able to support all the students who requested for the support due to limited resources. We have encouraged them to apply for bursaries and seek support from other organizations and banking institutions we wish them well. Thank you to all who have supported us and the Kachiuru community in one way or the other and we are optimistic that we get more support from our friends, well-wishers and our partners.
