Project Elimu is very Grateful for the floor face-lift renovation to make it more child friendly and safe for our beneficiaries. As with the rest of the World, the impact of COVID-19 in Kenya stretched and disrupted our activities, However, Four wonderful things are happening at our space; 1. Started our dancing sessions though in small groups of 20 girls due to COVID 19 government restrictions and guidelines in our country. 2. The space is being used by our Menstrual Health Initiative program called the Smile Bank focused on addressing the Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRH) as well as problems faced by Adolescent girls and young women in the informal settlements of Nairobi during their menstruation. The project empowers the Adolescent girls and young women with information and education o their reproductive health and rights as well as the provision of dignity kits such as sanitary towels. The SRH education and information equips the AGYW with problem-solving skills to some of the common challenges they face within their community. 3. We are starting out a new fundraiser to sustain our Arts program for 2021, we will keep you posted for the exact dates. 4. Our space is also being used for various communities based activities like COVID 19 related training in Nairobi County targeting local leaders for the mitigation and prevention measures of COVID 19 spread in our communities as well as food distribution by project Elimu. In summary, space has been very instrumental and sealed gaps experienced by other stakeholders, partners and us Project Elimu unlike previously anticipated to be used for dance sessions only. From Project Elimu we recognize and appreciate the donations and walking with us during this period as we look forward to future engagement s and support. Find attached a short dance video by the girls from Project Elimu Senior dance group.
