As the Corona Virus has spread around the globe, Kenya is no exception. On March 16th, 2020 the government closed primary and secondary schools. Colleges and universities also closed soon after.  The social distancing measure have paid off for Kenya, keeping numbers fairly low. The challenge the measures is not being able to work and really preventing starvation. Umoja has been raising funds for Emergency Food support for our beneficiaries to help them get through until life returns to normal. For now, the world waits to re-open. 

In 2020, we were able to increase the number of children of Umoja sponsored Secondary Students. Our goal is to have all primary school students continue their education. This year we have 159 children in Secondary School across all 4 forms.

In February 2020, a group from one of our partners congregations, Tabernacle Presbyterian Church, visited the project. They were able to attend a montly Secondary Education meeting of students and guardians. The purpose of the meetings is to check in with students, resolve problems and motivate the children towards success.

There was a check presentation to the community for the secondary school fees. Children and guardians performed poems, songs, and of course in Kenya they danced!
