Hello Pamela and Radcliffe

On behalf Dirakho ECD ,the communty and on my own behalf ,kindly recieve greetings and new year wishes from all of us here in Dirakho kenya.

As a community we continue to appreciate both of you for your support in developing our ECD and pray that the almighty God grants you blessing and more life.

As we usher in new year this weekend,the ecd will be preparing reopenning for first term,2017 on 9th January. with number of kiddis set to go up.The kidds will require to continue with learning but minus their feeding program which has been largely affected with climate change.

Since mid this year(2016) communities have experienced long spell of drought unexpectedly.The farms never produced food including the one that was established for school.Preparation were done on time, but second season rains failed to show up hence all families are now stricken by hunger which has severely threatened the reopening of the institution.

As at present the situation is dire, we are reverting to start up irrigation system so that we can salvage the program.as a community we have acquired the irrigation pipes ,generator but with dont have ,fuel and water sprinklers to start irrigating the school for quick and sustainable food production and supply for the feeding program.

Any support towards this process will be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance

Benson Ojiambo

The center is a project established by Dirakho community based organization provide a long term solution to high rate of illitracy caused by late childhood school enrolment and early age school drop out.

As an organizatioza, we take this opportunity to appreciate you for your donation towards this noble project that currently has enrolled almost 100 children from lessfortunate famillies.

The donation will go along way in improving the learning environment of the children in the center and their nutritional health as it will help us to buy some children plastic chairs and establish a farm to grow beans for the center feeding programme.

The number of children has risen sharply in few recent months and is expected to shoot more higher moving forward, as most  poor parents within the community who are struggle with their children in far away schools are set to withdraw their children and enroll them in the center.

As orgnization we will forever value and appreciate you for this contribution and pray that Almight God provides you with long life together with your family.Upon recieving the donation we will update you and post photos for our progress.
