Learning of our children is now normal and levels of learning from nursery to university our children are at school for term two of learning unlike during COVID 19 period. We thank God for this; it is our prayer that the system continues.
On our work plan for scholastic material is running to the end of term two and materials have been given to children and learning is going on smoothly we received funds early
Uniforms have been provided to children this was in early January. Uniforms are provided once, a year, immediately we received funds through Riverfund. Uniforms were given out our children are smart on uniforms.
- Feeding children at school
Maize and beans were bought for term one and term two. So children are feeding at school to the end of term two. Our children are alright and healthy
The very needy and child headed children get food to fed at home too these take care of themselves at home and food is provided by every group to these very needy because we serve those in need our motto of River Fund
This is the desperate group but we keep serving them and looking after them. Those positive living we make sure they get their drugs in time (ARV’S)
It is our duty to see to it that our children are healthy on diets and make sure that their clinic days are very well known to them. The counselors visit them and comfort them where need be always
We always remind them to stick on COVID 19 rules of keeping distance, avoid unnecessary movements to places and homes and wash hands with soap, wear their masks
We are trying to maintain them but COVID 19 had disturbed the system due to its demands.
This most for girls. We have always given them courage to keep them happy and active send them to small trainings like tailoring and hair dressing trained these children for small scale business, sell buns samosa and others keep them busy so that they are not wasted
We are beginning this term and we are preparing for it so that our children come together, and play, we hope they will enjoy
There are children who are very needy, these are the OVC’S we top up their fees to boost their fees payments
We have always referred the dropouts for short courses like tailoring, hair dressing. These are project places who do not demand much.
There is no food for term three for our children because the yield has not been good therefore parent’s contribution is not there in term three
The standard of our children’s learning is not up to date because the children did not go to school for 2 years
There is full learning and continuous learning of children, term one ended properly and we are on term 2 learning with all levels of learning at school
Our suggestions are that the rains were not systematic, in some places the seeds dried and fair yield at all
Our request is that if funds are available we buy seeds for children’s parents these are women for the second season, maize, beans, groundnuts, garlic, sukuma, onions and tomatoes.
We are grateful for all the assistance
God bless you
