Build School for 80 Students in Arid Kachuru Kenya
By Lucy Mathenge - Project Assistant
We thank God for the successful school term and actually end of the year for our schools despite many challenges in many areas Kachiuru being one of the affected areas. It was an election year and so life has not been easy for many citizens especially the less privileged, vulnerable and those in very remote areas. We are happy we managed to have our feeding program in Kachiuru primary school throughout the year. This has been very successful initiative which attracted many children in the school and maintained them there thus benefiting with the education. This year Kachiuru has 15 students who will be sitting for their national exams as from 31st October 2017. This is good news as the school did not have enough students last year to sit for the exams thus forcing them to be registered in other schools for them to sit for their final national exams. We wish the 15 students luck in their forth coming exams and we are optimistic that they will perform well and secure vacancies in the best secondary schools. We are also happy to report that Kachiuru primary will benefit with another classroom which will be constructed during the November/December holiday and in January 2018 the classroom will be ready for use. The classroom construction has been funded by Wide Awake through our partners Friends of Kenya Schools and Wildlife (FKSW) and we take this opportunity to express our gratitude to everybody who has contributed towards the success of the Kachiuru community. With the contribution received though global giving community, we have been able to support the most vulnerable students in the Kachiuru primary school and we will continue supporting them and the whole school as we continue fundraising to be able to support all students in the school. We remain optimistic that we will have enough funds to continue supporting the feeding program in the school as well as providing scholarships to the most vulnerable children. We thank all the well-wishers for their kind support to the Kachiuru community and I encourage them to consider supporting them further
