Build School for 80 Students in Arid Kachuru Kenya

The school term started well in Kachiuru primary school with the new headteacher managing all the school activities as planned until when all the institutions were closed indefinitely by the president of the republic of Kenya as a result of covid 19 pandemic in mid March 2020.  This was a huge blow to many parents and guardians since it was unexpected and their children have been having their meals in the school in school feeding program hence they had not budgeted for breakfast and lunch at homes.  They had to adjust with the new development although most of them could not afford 3 meals per day since their source of income was as well affected by the pandemic resulting to low income and others not earning any income at all.  It has been very difficult moments for many Kenyans as most jobs and businesses were closed down due to the pandemic and mostly affecting the very vulnerable families who mostly depend on casual labour for their daily income for the survival of their families.  Through our community animator in Kachiuru we have been following up on the situation on the ground where she has reported that many families are facing difficulties in getting food.  In Kachiuru village, residents mainly depend on livestock rearing for their source of income where they sell livestock products and livestock for their income which is heavily affected by the corona disease thus leaving them very desperate.  Our organization and our partners have decided to intervene on this by distributing food, soaps and face masks to the most vulnerable families in the village to ensure at least they are protected from the disease as well as having food on their table even if it’s one meal a day.  Most families in the region are very needy and don’t receive government support and they don’t have access to information.  Schools are still closed and children encouraged staying at home for them to be safe as we wait for further directions from the government concerning the education program.  Our community animator have been sensitizing community on importance of observing safety during this monster pandemic by keeping social distancing, regular hand washing, sanitizing etc.  To be able to support the Kachiuru community with more food and other essentials during these harsh moments we invite all well-wishers, friends and colleagues to support us with any type of support for us to extend the same to the very needy and vulnerable community members.  We appreciate your continued support that we have received and request for further support whenever possible.  Thank you and stay safe.
